The ground floor consisted of a large hall, half of which was used by the public and the other half by the employees, a study and a dining room; the first floor housed the accredited persons' lounge.

Here again, the building was made of wood and plaster. It was very well decorated and had a lively silhouette. The wings resembled the bow or stern of a ship.
