The two-storey house is set in a slightly sloping terrain and creates an inner living landscape, which is directed more towards itself, into a kind of inner introvertedness. Same time it allows views into the surrounding world and the neighbouring garden and street. The platform of the house is raised above street level and thus finds itself more optically and acoustically private. The dominant of the house is the atrium, from which the height-layered platforms of the house are accessible (background - living zone - quiet zone - outdoor seating). The living zone is on the same level as the atrium, the bedroom zone is elevated above. In the living area with a fireplace and a terrace, the centre of the house is a dining room lit by a circular skylight. The bedrooms with facilities are separated from the living zone by the guest room. The main entrance is to the basement with facilities and office. From the west side there is an entrance to the atrium from the street next to the sauna.

The whole basement floor (perimeter walls, internal walls and the ceiling slab) are made from monolithic water impermeable concrete. The above-ground floor, including the slightly sloped roof, is designed as wooden made from solid cross-glued CLT panels. The external cladding of the walls is from accacia wooden boards.
The interior floors are from oak wood and polished concrete, outdoor terraces are made from accacia wooden boards. The windows frames are black aluminum, glazed with insulating triple glazing.
The house is designed in a low energy standard, the indoor climate is supported by forced ventilation with recuperation. Heating is designed as underfloor water heating system in combination with wall heating units, water heated by a gas condensing boiler and solar panel located on the roof. An air space is made around the basement due to the heigh level of the groundwater. Under the atrium there is also a rainwater tank for watering the garden.
