The complex was built on the site of the former rural estate; therefore the disposition volume and shape of the new buildings have been determined after the original houses, while their functional relations adhere to the structural logic of the local rural households. In addition to the Houses C and D, the complex consists of a representative accommodation facility – House A, TP offices – House B and an additional accommodation facility – House 23.

House C and House D are designed for a wide range of cultural and creative activities. They occupy the positions of removed utility structures of the former rural household and are focused on the central area of the property standing in a strong correlation. In form, structure and material they invoke associations with the utility sheds of the contemporary local households which are essentially just parts of the courtyard covered by a steal canopy. In that sense, the interior of both houses is designed to evoke an impression of such a canopy rather than an enclosed interior space. This feature is further accentuated by the same materialization of the shell in the interior and on the façade.

House C represents an experience point - a meeting place for all –  the artists residing and creating on the estate, as well as for leisure visitors and those on vacation. It is conceived as an entirely open multifunctional space for the most diverse events: presentations, film screenings, concerts, exhibitions, food tasting etc. Mobile interior partitions, rotating work station and large openings on the façade - connecting the interior with an outdoor plateau and the vegetable garden garden, make the House C very adaptable for various activities. Depending on the position of the rotating work station as well as whether the screen of the kitchen alcove is open or closed, the visual impression of the interior fluctuates  from the warm feel  of a dining room or a cafeteria, to the cold ambience of the stark exhibition hall. The interior is equipped and shaped for most diverse events (from presentations, exhibitions, concerts, food tasting, to the cafeteria and places for relaxation and leisure); it is designed to evoke local outdoor sheds and canopies covering parts of the household, alowing intense contact of interior end exterior and a comprehensive experience of the local context and environment.

House D is a universal workshop designed for different types of creative work. It is a contemporary craft workshop for artists, designers, developers and researchers, conceived as an integrated two-level flowing open space. Ground floor is designed as an integrated space for manual work with such materials as ceramics, wood and metal, while the upper  floor is intended for computer work, conferences and meetings. Both an integral part of the building and its outdoor extension is the light steel structure on columns with a separate staircase - which forms a terrace and represents an exterior work space on ground floor and the upper floor, so that the capacity of the workshop is significantly expanded during summer period. The geometry of the House D is derived from the corn shed that was once located in its place, as well as the prefabricated utility structure of a neighboring household in its immediate environment. The building is materialized in stark simplified form, "rased on its feet," and lifted off the ground, with the idea that it only overhangs the part of the estate.
