Text description provided by the architects. Besides technical challenges an architect, responsible for the mansion design, will also solve for the incorporation of natural landscape. The goal is to be as nature considered as possible. The architecture of the mansion must be site-sensitive in relationship to its orientation and light capture, while interiors must deliver best views and a spatially articulate enclosure.

The site is located in the back of the birch forest clearing. No trees are allowed to be cut during the construction.

The mansion is a two-volume construction. The smaller, first-store volume, contains a garage with necessary systems for heating and air conditioning. The building features a green roof.

The larger volume, located above the ground floor, has two above-ground floors with two tiers of windows spaces oriented east towards the forest.

Building facades are finished with larch planks. Larch is also used in partional interior finishing: flooring and walls. This kind of tribute naturalism allowed the house to be organic insertion into the surrounding landscape.

White ceiling and necessary artificial lighting provide  best perception for pallet gradation of grey. The style of the premises restrained, sometimes minimalist, but very expressive. Accented by original lamps, bookshelves with complex geometry, bright color spots to make the premises of individual character.
