Deutsches Haus features patterned brick exterior and roof top inspired by German architecture. The most appealing aspect of the structure is the soaring 32-foot, peaked ceiling of the great hall. The sharply angled interior is cross-braced with raw timbers and hung with four huge chandeliers. The tall, triangular front and back walls are perforated with a grid of small square windows that are shielded from the sun by the stepped roof overhang.
The facility is comprised of a large meeting hall with a supporting bar and kitchen, a member only bar, classrooms, and a future outdoor beer garden. The Members only bar top is constructed from the former 2-lane bowling alley at their former location.
