All rooms face the site except for the kitchen, which is located at the back of the building and is illuminated by a skylight. The outer surfaces of the bathhouse were covered with older, darkened wooden planks.

All of the internal surfaces, including the gallery walls, were framed with newer, lighter wooden boards. The steam room wall was made from calibrated logs and can be seen in the main façade.
