The architectural expression of the facades is based on dimensionally classical window openings of the contemporary expression with a combination of large-area glazing of living rooms, which at the same time ensure sufficient sunlight and a pleasant interior atmosphere. The street facade is defined on the 2nd and 3rd floors by a significant mass of overhanging loggias. The dynamics of the objects is supported by the use of materials – a trowel with the expression of exposed concrete on the 1st floor, white exterior plaster in combination with brick cladding on the 1st and 2nd floor and vertically structured light brown plaster on the 3rd floor.

The main entrances to the buildings oriented on the northwest side are accessible from the ground on the 1st underground floor. Family houses each consist of three housing units. On the first underground floor there is a garage, technical and storage areas for residential units. In family house B, in addition to these spaces, there is also a studio on the 1st floor with a separate entrance facing the northwest side. There is always one apartment unit on the three above-ground floors of family houses, accessible via a common internal staircase and elevator. The layout of the apartment is on the 1st and 2nd floors formed by an entrance hall with an emergency toilet, which separates the day – social zone from the night – intimate zone. The daytime part consists of a living room, a dining room, a kitchen and a pantry. One bedroom with a separate sanitary facility and wardrobe is accessible from the living room. From the bedroom and living room there is access to the southern outdoor terrace, covered with a console. In the night part of the apartment there are two bedrooms, a bathroom with toilet and a laundry room. The apartment unit on the top floor is laid out with a central entrance hall, from which you can access the day part of the apartment, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a toilet. The daytime part consists of a living room with a dining room and a kitchen. The houses are based on reinforced concrete foundation strips with a reinforced concrete slab under the elevator shaft. The perimeter walls are solved on the 1st underground floor with monolithic reinforced concrete and on the higher floors with load-bearing masonry made of aerated concrete blocks with thermal insulation from mineral wool.
