The family house of the architect Milan Zloković – Villa Kaja – built in 1927. in the Neimar settlement in Vračar marked the penetration of modern architecture into the Belgrade environment. The characteristic of the location – the corner of two differently leveled streets – conditioned the basic structural conception of the building based on three-dimensional solution of the interior volume in relation to the leveling of the terrain, while the inverse design can recognize the inverse principle of Raumplan, according to which contextuality conditioned the volumetric and geometric setting. There are four apartments in three levels – the main and largest apartment of the architect Zloković, on the ground floor from Internacionalnih brigada Street (before Prestolonaslednikova Street, i.e., Kraljevića Tomislava Street) – the central level of the house, and two smaller apartments for rent on the first floor and one on the ground floor from Janka Veselinovića Street (before Nova Street). The position of the house is additionally emphasized by the gradation of the masses towards the street corner, instead of the usual accentuation of the corners, so that the whole is seen by the erosion of the volumes and their gradation. At the time when it was built with its modern aesthetics, it dominated the poorly built Neimar, as evidenced by the photographs taken during the construction of the house.
