The house perfectly fits into the existing urban structure, not only in terms of the function but also with its shape and geometrical proportions. The main goal was to design a rather neutral house made of concrete - which can be found both in the exterior and the interior. As a contrast to the rawness of this material the architects designed occacional wooden elements around the house, such as the wood cladding. There are two blocks in total – the living one and the garage. The living block is located in the northeastern part of the lot and opens to the southwest, benefiting from the orientation to the Sun. It is divided into two zones – a social one and a private one. The inteiror functions correspond to the exterior appearance which is achieved through the nature of cladding and the position of the garage block which creates an enclosed intimate space near the private rooms.

The peripheral walls are designed as reinforced concrete both in the exterior and the interior with a thermal insulation in between them. On the facade, there is a concrete with an exposed wooden formwork texture used along with a wooden cladding. Paved areas are made of concrete and stone in the front arrival part and of wooden planks on the terrace, further away from the entrance. The window frames are made of aluminium and the interior doors are finished in wooden veneer with hidden door frames.
