The target of the design was sustainability and low-cost maintanance. The building consists of 1 level above ground and 1 level below ground has optional mezzanine for further development.

Entire low-cost maintanance allows almost full independency of the investment. The roof from the west side is covered with fotovoltaic panels and solar collectors. The flat roof is covered with 65 sqm of extensive greenery. It consums solar energy preventing from overheating of the living room. Designed green house is situated next to the main entrance and separated garage with technical rooms. Installations are ground heat exchanger and sewage farm.
