The name of the House of the Fracture is not accidental; it was determined by its difficult terrain. The trapezoidal floor plan is not only sloping, but it also fractures in the direction of the neighbouring property. The solution had to take into account the complex shape and the sloping of the terrain to the west.

The basic floor plan is L-shaped and formed by two perpendicular masses. The geometry and situation of the building have been adapted not only to the land itself but also to the view, line of the street, and the neighbouring building. The axis of the ground floor is perpendicular to the longitudinally oriented building on the next property; the line of the entrance façade is a continuation of the street line. The gap between the masses serves as a canopy above the entrance. The axis of the lines pervades the entire building and is also reflected in the interior. Wooden cladding and flooring enlivens the minimalist design of the house.
