The 35 metre deep shaft structure of the Häusling power house consists of a freestanding reinforced concrete cylinder with an outside diameter of 32.8 metres, which is founded entirely on rock. The building has no direct anchoring to the rock of the slope behind it. Hydraulic cushioning is built into the ground floor and the first floor on the mountain side to prevent any carryover of tension - a construction method that was developed based on experience gained in the construction of the Roßhag power house. The roof of the machine hall is connected to the slope by means of an anchor and gutter beam that can be walked on that can be used to channel water from the slope and roof to the drainage canal via a drop shaft.
The buildings are made of coated in situ concrete using prefabricated concrete elements in the area of the roof edges.
The machine hall has a concrete ribbed floor and a light coating on the inside. The floors and the lower part of the walls are equipped with a covering of red clinker panels.
