Text description provided by the architects. The land plot with new building of the family house is located on the southern sid of the Ještěd Ridge with a beautiful view of the landscape. The  form corresponds with terrain relief and the land orientation towards cardinal points. The grand plan of the wide open V form splits the house into two masses.

The social part of the house is situated in the western wing witha saddle roof – the timber building. The rest of the building is made of concrete blocks and has a green roof linked to the terrain. There, the bedrooms are located; the garage with the utility room is on the northern side.
