Solar powered masterpiece in Playa Grande ~ Brand new construction

Description

Horizontal Tabs

Description

The first off-grid residence in Costa Rica was born out of the investigation of a new way of life rather than a traditional architectonic response. This 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom home was planned to take only what is necessary, through passive systems that are adapted to different configurations and to each of the living areas. The property is located in the new gated community of Las Ventanas,  a few miles before the beautiful beach of Playa Grande. The lot was carefully chosen and is ideal for kids to play and even expand with your creativity. There's plenty of room for extension.

High end finishes and systems throughout including:

  • Green energy Costa Rica guaranteed Solar System with 24 Trina Solar Panels of 250W and 12 Lumos Solar Panels of 250W
  • 9.2KWp in peak output
  • Roca porcelanate flooring
  • Roca toilets, sinks and faucets 
  • Certified Teak floor 
  • Aluplast doors and windows

  • Kitchen Aid Fridge and Stove
  • Carrier Air conditioners
  • Whirlpool Washer

  • Lutron Lighting
  • Crow Alarm and Hik Vision Cameras

Construction is based on three fundamental principles: efficiency, double functionality and maintaining a closed cycle, where each of these principles is materialized in the architecture. Efficiency is established through a prefabricated system that is later put together on site. This allows shortened execution times and reduces the cost of construction, as well as the direct impact over the terrain. The double functionality is reached as the architecture is conceived to fulfill and resolve a specific climatic parameter. 

Maintaining a closed cycle is achieved through the reutilization of resources, energy, water and food, that are integrated to each other through an organizational system that revolves around an elevated central patio, defining the unit as a living component that breathes from its interior. The crossed ventilation, prefabrication, the extraction and induction system which passively takes advantage of the air currents and thermal differences, the reutilization of water for food production and the solar radiation protection, as well as the captured energy stored in a comprehensive system of solar panels strategically positioned to take advantage of energetic performance, are part of the basic strategies which allow the home to be an independent, 100% sustainable off-grid system.
