IMPECCABLE CRAFTSMANSHIP WITH GREEN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN
The Modern Balinese style design consists of 3,200 total sq ft of construction (2,400 sq ft under roof) and includes 2 Beds / 2 Baths on over 2 acres of land with views that will take your breath away. This style of design allows the ocean breezes to flow through the home and circumvent the heat out so there is never a need for A/C. Bedrooms include ceiling fans to make sure your stays are always comfortable and cool.
Most of the areas are oriented to the Pacific Ocean coast, the master bedroom and the green roof are also heading up to the secondary forest for a more peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. Practical solutions were considered for the house with materials such as a clay contemporary roof, local stone surfaces, metal and aluminum frames, and of course the use of local craftsmen that provided a smooth and clean construction process. The home was designed to leave as small of an environmental foot print as possible to enhance the overall dream of the Costa Rican government going Carbon Neutral by 2021.
A quote from the builder, “The experience of living in Costa Rica tells me that the Natural Environment and to live in harmony with it, is as precious as our every day breathing. The goal is to accomplish excellent quality and great impact with our architectural solution. It’s an experience designed to be in harmony with the land and forest in Costa Rica.”
