The designer Werner van der Meulen created a framework of steel columns and beams around the entrance with louvered planes sheltering the four garages and the floating roof. The tiled roof was replaced with a suspended cube that floats in mid air with glass areas bringing more light into the living room as well as into the guest bedroom.
