White Steel Villa in Costa Rica

Robles Arquitectos created this incredible beach Villa in Costa Rica. The house is wonderfully situated on a small hill above the ocean, 20km from away from any town. The self-sustainable structure was a challenge to the architects, as the house had to be independent and reliable in the humid environment. Peninsula de Osa, the place where this modern building is situated, is an amazing home to 5 % of the world`s biodiversity and the calming and paradise-like effect it has on the inhabitants of this house is astonishing. The building houses a multifunctional space for the ISEAMI Institute (Institute of Sustainability, Ecology, Art,Mind and and the second level of the house is used as a home by the Institute`s director.
