Site for the house is located in Georgia, in the suburb of Tbilisi. District is area for the residential buildings. House was planned for the young family. The idea was to design a modern individual living house with open spaces inside. Ground floor contains isolated cabinet and one open space with living, dining and kitchen areas separated by decorative elements, with walkways through both sides. This floor has a glazing wall in the side of the yard and plain wall on the side of the street. It’s easy and comfortable for parents to look after playing children, while being in the house. There’s a long pool along the ground floor, which separates house from the yard and leaving a small bridge as an only connection. Yard is a best place to have fun, also for relaxation or just taking a sunbath. Second floor also serves as the cover of the open-air parking. There is one master bedroom and two other bedrooms with separate WCs on the second floor. These bedroom have one common terrace on the side of the yard.

The customs checkpoint is situated at the Georgian border to Turkey, at the shore of the Black Sea. With its cantilevering terraces, the tower is used as a viewing platform, with multiple levels overlooking the water and the steep part of the coastline. In addition to the regular customs facilities, the structure also houses a cafeteria, staff rooms and a conference room. The building welcomes visitors to Georgia, representing the progressive upsurge of the country.
