The two buildings were built at the same time and had the same house type. The facade is simple and symmetrical, with fewer decorations. The first and second floors adopt red plain bricks, with buttresses at wall corners. The colonnades on the third floor are covered with cement stucco which is distinctive and contrasting, and there is a circle of simple architraves at the junction of the second and third floors. The double-folded-tile hipped roof has a high-pitched top and obvious bottom cornices diagonally supported by brackets in pair. There are semi-circular arch loggias on both sides of the third floor. The windows are light, with wooden shutters on the first and second floors. The overall architectural style is graceful and generous.
