Apart from that open-worked metallic façade perfectly filters bright sun light. Concrete panels are supported by X-form reinforcement girders, which gave the name to this house.

Functional zones are divided floor-by-floor: the first floor contains social zone, the second one allocates three children`s rooms and covered Jacuzzi, whereas the third one has bedrooms for parents with entrance to the terrace.

Opened textured surfaces and wood finishing were widely used in the interior. Moreover, there is plenty of perforated material in the premises decoration.
