At the beginning of the design process, as a result of the analysis and in order to comply with the planning vision of the municipality, it was decided to make a one-story building with a simple, cuboidal, form that would allow the building to blend harmoniously into the surrounding, forested, landscape.

The elongated body of the building was finished to create a covered arcade over the main terrace and the main entrance to the building. Large expanses of glazing were designed under the roof canopy, which was exposed to the west and south sides. The expanse of windows allowed the interior space and the garden to permeate each other while controlling the inflow of sunlight, thanks to the appropriately designed arcades mentioned earlier. Due to the peculiarities of the Polish climate, the sun's rays fall at a lower angle in the winter months and at a higher angle in the summer months

Thanks to the placement of the windows, in the manner mentioned above, the sun's rays flow into the living room and other rooms without restriction in the winter months, while in the summer, when it's warm, the arcades limit the direct flow of sunlight protecting against excessive heating of the interior surfaces. It was decided to use elongated ceramic tiles as the facade material. This material, due to its timeless nature, allowed to give the building a unique look and character.

The entire shape, both functional and aesthetic, was intended to make the most of the potential of the plot and surrounding areas.
