The proposal deals with the construction of four family semi-detached houses, where each building has two housing units on three floors. Each apartment has parking and a private garden.
The location of Ahoj-Briežky, perceived since ancient history as a location of vineyards, was a challenge for the design of four family houses that would not appear too challenging with their mass, composition and placement in the given terrain, and at the same time convey to the residents a legacy of the somewhat forgotten history of Bratislava’s vineyards and winemaking objects.

The architects tried to respect the traditional local character of the construction, connected to the surrounding natural environment, mainly by the application of elements made of wood and natural materials, additional subtle steel structures, which are supposed to serve as a support for the climbing vines forming the green wall, and also by the traditional shape of the roof with a gable oriented towards the street. Likewise, the visible parts of the basement, designed in the appearance of stone, or of a concrete wall, are a certain interpretation referring to local traditions in the field of construction. The wooden surfaces of the facades harmoniously complement the natural environment of the forest massif of the Small Carpathians and in distant views do not have a dominant and distracting effect on its background. The architects combined this continuity with the location, history and environment with a contemporary modern form using large glazed areas and contemporary methods of material execution. The views of the surroundings, whether far above the city or the Carpathians, the proximity of the forest and the proximity of the center at the same time create an ideal combination for contemporary living, where people spend much more of their free time in nature, but at the same time want to be part of a busy life.
