The ceilings of the balconies are lined with trowel-on plaster on the suspended ceiling.
Wall surfaces of the common areas
The interior plasters and paint shall be covered with gypsum plaster and a trowel-on coating as well as wear-resistant paint. The walls in the entrance hall, the connecting corridor (ground floor), main landings of all above-ground storeys and in the 1st basement in the 3rd section, lift landings and their anterooms in the basement shall be lined with large format ceramic panels. The emergency escape corridor on the ground floor, pram storage room and the technical rooms on the ground floor shall be finished with plaster and wear-resistant paint. The walls of the cleaning room in the basement shall be lined with ceramic wall tiles. The rest of the walls in the basement are made of reinforced concrete with wear-resistant porous paint. The interior walls of the cellars shall be made of unplastered concrete bricks with hydrophobic coating. On the ground floor, the reinforced concrete walls and columns above 2.1 m shall be lined with mineral slabs. The edges of the walls and columns in the garages shall be marked with warning yellow-black shading.

Building entrance doors
Building entrance doors - raster façade system made of aluminium profiles. They are fitted with security electromechanical locks with the option to unlock them from the flat, with electronically controlled access.
The garage has sectional remote-controlled exit gates, licence plate number scanner, GSM gate.
The gates are controlled by the access control scanners and fitted with optical opening/closing signalling.
The main entrances, drive-in, entrances to parking at the staircase are monitored by an electronic access control system (card readers). The access control system has its own backup so that it remains functional even in case of power failure. The main entrance to the building has a video telephone and bell panel. The video telephones are also installed at the drive-in and exit. The lifts have intercoms. The drive-in gate will close behind each vehicle. The interior space behind the gate shall be equipped with barriers in both directions. The exit column has a rolling panel with camera for communication with the reception desk and the flats (opening of the barriers and gate remote controlled from the reception desk). The exit is opened using the active card that is also used in the rest of the house. The waste collection area and the parking area shall be divided by a self-locking lock with readers on both sides. A camera system shall also take care of the security of the inhabitants. The system shall be designed to cover the entrances and common areas (off the lift landing), reception desk, basement hall, parking, drive-in/exit and the thoroughfare. The cameras shall also monitor the corridors around the house, but only to cover the gardens of the flats. The common areas also have shell protection connected to the Central Security Desk with signalling to the reception desk.
The flats have fire-resistant security doors. The EPS (electronic fire signalling system) controls the fire flaps, closes the fire flaps in the garages, ventilation of the staircases and triggers the fire alarm. Transmission of the signal to the “Central Fire Rescue Desk of the Fire Rescue Service” is instantaneous at night; during the day it occurs only after confirmation of the alarm or lapse of the systemic period. Upon triggering of the alarm, the air-conditioning is deactivated, all the lifts run to the nearest station, the locks at the escape exits are released, the key storage safe is unlocked. CO detectors, dry sprinklers and fire shutters are installed between the fire sections in the parking area. Emergency lighting of the corridors, staircases and garages will be equipped with built-in maintenance-free batteries and fulfil the emergency lighting function (on the escape route(s)). Dedicated fire safety equipment has a secure alternative power supply - Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).
The building has two personal lifts that serve all the above-ground and the common underground storeys. The lifts have large format mirrors, premium ceramic tiles and overhead lighting. They are not evacuation lifts and the reinforced concrete shafts are flexibly divided from the rest of the supporting structures.
Landscaping and irrigation
The common greenery shall be irrigated automatically; pre-installations are proposed for the private gardens including a plumbing shaft with a valve for connection of the owner’s own automatic irrigation system. The electrical pre-installations in the plumbing shaft are only for the requirements of automatic irrigation and are of low voltage design (24 V).
Control of the building lighting
Corridors, staircases and entrance hall - sensor-activated lighting. The lighting of the corridors, thoroughfares and garage areas is controlled by motion sensors. The lighting of the cellars shall be switched in sections, which be controlled via switches that will be installed near the entrances. In the rest of the rooms (basement facilities), a switch shall be installed at the entrance to each of them.
