The building is in residential use, so it can only be viewed from the outside.
The alteration work ordered by the Karpio family was one of the first projects of the Alvar Aalto Office for Architecture and Monumental Art in Jyväskylä. However, the design was not implemented in full. This single-storey building is located on a sloping site. The entrance is via a porch with wooden columns in the classicist style. The exterior of the building has remained unchanged.
