According to him, the cell membrane is made of a three layer sequence of protein-lipid-protein.

The external layer is a hydrophilic layer made of protein molecules of diameter #20A-25A#. The middle layer is a light hydrophobic layer made of phospholipids of diameter #25A-35A#.

The total breadth of the cell membrane is #65A-85A#.
