The Nemo Building is located within a picturesque landscape of the Masuria lakes, on a plot with direct access to the lake via a private beach. The building was designed to complete the land form on the spot, as well as to take full advantage of the impressive lake panorama. The house is a rectangle of 50m in total length, which nearly covers the length of the plot available. The internal layout of the house is generally focused around the view of the lake, which is why all rooms face the water. This was one of the main assumptions for the design. In contrast, from the side of the access road, the house appears as veiled and enigmatic. Apart from the glazed entrance and the window illuminating the kitchen, the front wall is nearly devoid of windows and features the entrance gates for the car and boat only. In turn, the lake-side wall was designed as fully glazed.
