The complex is formed by six different buildings united in the shape of the letter U. One of the buildings includes the remains of a medieval defence tower. The building on Aleea Filozofilor is linked to the ones facing towards Piața Armelor (the old Kempel Barracks) by walls curved in plan indicating that they probably were part of the medieval town fortifications. The gable which is visible from Tribunei st is a modified medieval gable. The buildings have saddle roofs and Baroque high chimneys (XVIIIth century).
