The main concept behind the design is to create quiet and sophisticated accommodation on social contacts, which will enable the creation of the neighborhood community. Residents can interact better with one another, particularly through shared exterior spaces in the houses. The shared spaces with horizontal and vertical gardens, footbridges, and pavilions encourage various leisure activities or socializing. The facade design is austere, it does not interfere with the compactness of the structure and contrasts with the structured and varied atriums.The arrangement of the blocks, the orientation of atriums in relation to the cardinal points, the influence of green architecture, and the play of light and shadow make the climate between the blocks more pleasant. A platform rising above the gently sloping terrain in the form of an airy plinth and garages and amenities integrates the four-storey blocks into a single functional unit. Consoled masses and entry ramps emphasize the entrances.

The complex includes two rental buildings with 116 small flats for the elderly over 65 years of age and starter flats for young families, a public park, and surrounding streets with greenery. The social context is underlined by the facilities located in one of the houses – the library, the Cultural and Educational Centre, the Social Services Centre, and a café. All areas, including the twelve apartments, are accessible to wheelchair users. Air quality in the apartments is ensured by decentralised waste air recovery through filtration and humidification. At the same time, in combination with central heating, it optimises the energy demand of the flats. The amenities areas are air-conditioned and are visually connected to the atria by glazed walls. The services available to the public are complemented by a café accessible from the park and atrium, together with public toilets. The public park is for various forms of active and passive recreation for people of all ages.
