The house is a part of the forest. The entire ground floor facade is glazed with large sliding windows. The exterior here blends to the interior space. The walls usually tightly surrounding interior have parted and are formed by exterior elements – garage and workshop building on the west, hillside on the east, retaining wall on the north.
The house is divided into two buildings – technical and residential. The entrance to the residential building is located on the first floor. It leads to the vestibule, cloakroom, study and bedrooms. There is a straight staircase descending to the opened living space on the ground floor. Rooms on this floor are arranged depending on the level of the intensity of their use – kitchen, dining room, seating with the fireplace and lounge.The ground floor is a free-flowing space divided only by furniture. A sanitary facility is placed in the core around which the individual functions are located.

Materials
The retaining wall is made of architectural concrete and the same material passes from exterior to interior. The horizontal mass of the bedroom floor and the vertical mass of the garage are placed on this retaining wall. Facades of both masses have wooden cladding made into tilting shutter plates in the areas where windows are placed. The facade of the residential ground floor is glazed with black aluminum sliding portals. Slate stone with an admixture of iron oxides was used as the floor material that again passes from the exterior to the interior. The ceiling above the first floor is made of wooden slats and is an analogy of the facade cladding.
