The apartment building is located at Otýlie Beníšková Street in Pilsen, which is directly connected to the Republic Square and the historic center (behind the river). The house was built on the site of a gap and completes the street profile, while with the adjoining corner house "Nová Roudná", it completed S-Z part of the block and thus created a new city avenue from this street.

The design idea of the street façade is dividing the façade plane into more levels with receding some planes with also highlighting the ground floor by changing the material. Furthermore, the building bridges the height difference of neighbouring houses with receding floors. Creating sufficient number of parking spaces can also be highlighted – three underground floors with separate entrances to each of them is ensured by the large height difference between the street and the courtyard area.

The building is used primarily for residential purposes and there are 56 apartments on 8 floors. The ground floor with a courtyard terrace is reserved for business purposes. Three underground floors are designed for parking, technical equipment and cellars. From the street, the building is accessible by two entrances to the residential part, 4 separate entrances to busoness premises and an entrance to the first underground floor.
