The city plan defined the area of construction on the plot which was a trapeze shape with sharp corners. Investors claimed to see the sea in distance from every space in the house, which was very demanding. The city plan allows only ground-floor houses in the area where the house is located.

The solution to solve the main investor's claim was to make a raumplan design of spaces-spaces with different needs and different height requirements; an intertwined space for living-indoor and outdoors, and two spaces for sleeping/services. The denivelation of floor plans between sleeping/service spaces and main space for living-indoor and outdoor are 1,5 m and 1,3 m.

Windows positions and dimensions allow sun traces to enter the house through various parts of the day, outlining shadows and sun traces.  The pool colour reflects the surrounding greenery like a water mirror, the colour of the house reflects the colour of the Istrian red soil.
