The building is located in Bernolákovo, a village and municipality in Western Slovakia. Sitting on a site surrounded by detached houses and garden plots, the house is set back from the street and provides a high level of privacy for its owners.

The central layer comprises basic dwelling spaces laid out in a Palladian 3×3 grid with a slightly lowered dining room. The outer layer houses different-sized patios, a garage, a swimming pool, and storage areas. This layer acts as an in-between space that serves as a mediator between the central functions and the garden spaces conceived as two distinct environments. While the one in front of the house looks like an informal space, the rear garden has a more functional quality.
