The Hranice cascades are made up of three solitary apartment buildings set on a gentle slope, which form one whole. The spatially diverse architecture divides the basic volume into smaller boxes, which are recessed or left in their original position. The plastic solution is strengthened by stretching some ceiling panels. This combination of alternating odd and even floors creates spacious semi-recessed terraces that offer plenty of space and privacy. At the same time, the characteristic overlaps provide effective protection against overheating.

The identity of the individual houses is ensured by HPL panels with wood decor installed on the steel railing of the terrace.

In terms of construction, it is a 5-storey building with a basement, serving as a technical background, garage and cellar space. The upper floor is used for living in residential units. The construction consists of a monolithic reinforced concrete skeleton with infill masonry, which allows freedom of layout.

The basic load-bearing structure consists of a reinforced concrete skeleton with a ceiling slab. The column module creates the premise of solving apartments in various sizes, from approximately 35 m2 to an unlimited size according to the client's requirements. Also the demands on the static solution of objects are less demanding due to the small span.

The skeleton itself creates optimal conditions for an unlimited solution of the layout of individual floors and apartments. Extreme rafters (2m) are carried out by vertical walls, in the form of supports or by hanging ceilings into rafter walls, which are placed at the outer columns alternately on every second floor. The windbreak of the buildings is ensured, among other things, by stair walls with an elevator shaft and can be reinforced in the lower floors with windbreak walls. The establishment of objects is done on piles.
