The original iron drapery hardware, chandeliers, and light fixtures are still in place. The flat roof is a typical feature of buildings on the North African coast. The entry hall is small with a wood coffered ceiling ornamented with iron studs. Massive arches lead off to the living room, dining room, and stairs.
