The land is located in the middle of an apartment building from the 60s of the last century. Originally there was a coal-fired boiler room on the plot, which heated the surrounding houses. She later lost her position.
The designed apartment building with 29 apartments and 2 business units has 6 floors above ground and one underground floor. The house adjoins the neighboring apartment building and descends in height towards the lower buildings on the opposite side of the street. Along the road are designed outdoor parking spaces, the ground floor is complemented by trees and ornamental greenery. In the courtyard is designed a park area with a wooden gazebo.
The apartment building is divided into two materials in terms of volume and material. The upper six-storey and the lower four-storey sit on a common ground floor, in which parking and non-residential premises are located. The higher mass tectonically leans towards the surrounding buildings, it acts stably, "heavily", the lower mass, on the other hand, is "lightened" by loggias and larger window openings. A significant element on the 6th floor are the corner terraces complemented by a frame structure with a pergola.
The facades of the house are solved by two types of ground and fine-grained plasters. The railings of loggias and terraces are designed as semi-transparent from steel profiles, supplemented by vertical slats, the railings at the terraces are complemented by sheet metal flower beds. The raster motif of the steel railing is further applied to the facade of the ground floor, which is designed from trapezoidal sheet metal.
The authors of the design were inspired by the work of Michelangelo, its fragments are then used as quotes in the detail of common areas, such as the glass tiling at the main entrance to the building or as a sign of the floors.

The project is conceptually designed and implemented as energy passive. The load-bearing structure of the house is designed in a combination of reinforced concrete and lime-sand masonry. Loggia brackets are made 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 apartments have a central system of forced ventilation with heat recovery. The heating of the flats is hot water, the source of heating is the hot water connection. The apartments on the top floors have an autonomous heating and cooling system using a heat pump and photovoltaic panels.
