The main feature of the project is it's location in the heart of Heredia's beautifully rich mountain landscape. Our main goal at the moment of conceptualization was to take advantage of the view from every single room inside the residence and make use of the benefits that the concept would give us, such as a big source of natural lightning. We like to work with organic textures modified through different artisanal techniques like wood and concrete, so as to capture a finishing variability. In this case we used these textures for the ceilings, walls, and floors. Water, as a purifying and contemplative element, was embodied through a water mirror in the garden on the residence's entrance. The high walls and ceilings in the project favor a free moving ventilation and allow for a better appreciation of the design details from different angles.
