The builder's intention was to enrich the environment of the mountain resort with a quality contemporary new building in the overall concept and detail. The design took into account the requirements for durability and safe operation in the summer and winter months, when the mountain environment and climate place increased demands on the solution of details of roofs, facades, space for snow accumulation and its thawing.

The multifunctional building with three apartments and an exchange office space is designed as a two-storey non-basement wooden building with a countertop roof.
Materially, the building forms a whole divided into three blocks, set at different heights according to the slope of the terrain. Each block is covered by a countertop roof with a small slope. This is optically magnified by the geometry of the front walls, which form an acute angle with the other walls. The roof made of folded sheet metal is inclined in a uniform slope to the external surface-mounted gutters.
A ventilated facade made of vertical wooden decks is used on the main wings of the building. On the central part, in which the entrance and common communication spaces are designed, a ventilated facade with a cladding of cement-gray boards of dark gray color is used. Both main facades of the building are finished with a structural glazed facade, from which it is possible to access the terraces.
