The main assumption of the project is to restore the original character of the Pilecki Family House as a small-town landowner’s house in the garden. The new building accentuates the garden by placing the house in the foreground, hence it was moved further into the garden and joined with a glass connector. To emphasize the house even more, a glass wall with a simple colonnade was proposed in its background. Inside, sliding windows in wooden frames open the hall to the surroundings.

The greenery is composed in a way to resemble a traditional small-town backyard garden with extended paths typical for a park garden. The central layout element is a house surrounded by lower plants with single tall, colorful flowers. The rest of the garden refers with its rounded forms to the flowerbed around the house, creating soft paths and passages.
