tradition of building apartment buildings in the 1930s, when apartment buildings in the city of Brno were built by top functionalist architects, such as Fuchs, Wiesner, Kuba, Dvořák.
The details used on the facade of the house thus follow the Brno tradition of using natural stones - in this case travertine on the window frames and on the ground floor of the building, the distinctive use of glass walls on the stairs and quality atypical locksmith details on the ground floor windows.
The façade of the house towards Šumavská Street is treated with semicircular balconies, which give the whole building a nautical expression and are a distinctive and unmistakable artistic accent.
The generous terraces to the south of the courtyard are equipped with a railing made of clear glass, allowing sufficient light penetration and a view of the greenery.

The materials used in the construction of the house are based on the identical philosophy of the developer and architects to use high-quality products with appropriate durability and effect.
It is mainly the use of natural stones, glass, high-quality plaster, above-standard ceramic tiles, aluminum window frames, quality floors, doors and fixtures.
