"GG House" was located on a south, steep slope in the green district of Cracow - Przegorzały. The simple form of the building is divided among window placements on the façade to let maximum amount of sunlight inside. The south façade of the building, is covered with balconies and porches which provides nice shade in summer and allows the sun to fill the interior in winter.

Architect Tadeusz Lemanski had to take into consideration not only the formation and geological structure of the plot, but also the constraints imposed on the project by local regulations and above all, the Directorate of Jurassic Landscape Parks. Due to strict zoning requirements the house had to be built only from natural materials and and covered with pitched roof with a steep slope.
