The power plant facility consists of three components: the main building, a residential section and an administrative addition that came later. The main building is a compact, five-storey high reinforced concrete structure with a triple-aisle layout. The structural skeleton allowed for a lighter, glazed ground level as well as for a typical rounded corners. The interior layout is fairly standard, with a spacious hall on the ground floor and general offices connected through a bright common hallway. Continuous vertical glazing of the side facade granted a unique character to the outer looks of the building. The residential building with one to three-room apartments is four-storey high, partly sunk in the grade. Expanded facility with a careful shaping of individual structural components is a typical representative of late modernism.
