The proposed apartment building with 24 apartments is connected to the surrounding linear development of terraced houses, which form the southern and eastern part of the adjacent area.
The building has 2 +1 aboveground floor and one underground floor with a garage. The mass of the house is oriented in the east - west direction, parallel to the terraced houses and is located on a terrain break, into which the underground floor is sunk. The southern part of the plot with mature trees slopes significantly to the neighboring gardens, it is newly terraced and planted with low greenery. In the northern part of the plot there is an area road with entrances to the building and parking spaces, the adjoining area is landscaped, planted with mature pine trees and serves as a common garden.
The material concept is based on dividing the mass of the house into smaller volumes and creating a smaller scale typical of terraced houses. The north and south facades are made up of four blocks that intersect the volume of the house in the perpendicular direction. These four volumes are plastically accentuated by overhanging frames on the south and north sides. The top floor of the house is receding, creating spacious sunken roof terraces with a southern view.
The material solution of the house is designed in a combination of white smooth plaster and vertical brick cladding of dark brown color.
The railings of balconies and terraces are designed from black perforated sheet metal. The terraces are complemented by steel pergolas filled with larch planks. The name of the project refers to the name of U Boroviček Street, and mature pines were also planted in the common garden in front of the house. The pine motif is further described on the details of the house in the entrance and in the common areas.

The load-bearing structure of the house is designed in a combination of reinforced concrete and lime-sand masonry. On the south and north facades are balcony brackets in the form of ISO beams. The envelope of the building is above-standard insulated and equipped with windows with triple glazing. The windows are equipped with window blinds as standard. The heating of the flats is hot water, the source of heating is a gas boiler. DHW heating is complemented by photovoltaic panels located on the roof of the house.
