The original design was planned to be made from shipping containers, but due to the lack of containers, time constraints and terrain availability, they opted for a prefabricated timber house. The whole building consists of three buildings, Workroom, Studio and Accommodation. The team was inspired by architecture, especially that of the Far East and the Shou-sugi-ban technique. Although each building is different, it is the black cladding that is the link. It is drawing on a tradition that is typical not only in this region but also in the Far East. Shou-sugi-ban, an old Japanese method of tanning wood, which helps to increase its resistance to weather, pests, wood-destroying fungi, but also fire, is mainly used for cladding houses. In Japan, they use cypress wood for cladding, in Slovakia the choice was red spruce after consulting various tilers. It is the ideal wood in these conditions for facade cladding. Uniform buildings are scattered freely on the hillside overlooking the distant landscape. In plan, the simple buildings are rectangular in plan, built on a bed of cob, set into the floodplain of the hill. The buildings grew outdoors outside the classical built-up area of Hruśov and blend in nicely with the wild local fauna and flora.
