It is divided into three sections. The centre includes the entrance, the hall and the main garden, the West Wing is exhibition area and the East Wing belongs to administration offices and education area. The layout of three axes is matching the style of Prince Zhong's Mansion. The whitewashed plaster wall with dark gray clay tile is the construction characteristic of Suzhou. The new museum adopts it as the primary colors. Instead of using traditional clay tiles, the roof is made of gray granites with uniformed colours. Modern steel structure is applied to the new museum to replace traditional roof beam structure. The interior is decorated with wooden frames and white ceiling. In addition, metal sunscreens with wooden panels instead of traditional carved windows lattice are introduced to make the new museum more sophisticated.
