It consists of an exterior access hall, lobby, painting area, exhibition area, bathroom, engraving area, engraving laboratory, brush cleaning office, an elevator, storing area and a bedroom and bathroom for a guard.

The exterior is covered with natural quarry stone. The interior is lighted with ceiling light, which provides soft natural light for a better appreciation of exhibited works.
