The house is situated on the edge of a little village on slightly sloping lot. The main axis follows the Northern border off a lot. At the entry there are two covered parking spots and two other on the driveway. Next to it is located a small storage building which incorporates a thermal pump – air-water for heating.

The main theme for the design was connection with the nature which surrounded the building. No house can be seen from the lot. It is a one story building without a cellar. There is a main multyfuncional room with kitchen,dinning and living, fireplace and direct connection to the covered teracce with hot tube and pool. In the middle there is an entry space spatially connected with family room. On the other side is located bathroom with sauna and steam cabin, two bedrooms and closet.

The construction is made from dry masonry – TESUZ, inside walls are left without a plaster, outside surface is insulated by mineral wool and covered by red cedar siding. The roof structure is made of wooden beams from the inside again the same material as is on the facade-red cedar paneling. On the top there is a roof-garden connected by steel starcase.
