Textual content description supplied by the architects.
Guarumo is a up to date residence positioned on the Costa Rican Pacific coast, the place the attribute tropical panorama is harmoniously mixed with fashionable, easy and discreet structure, all with a excessive diploma of aesthetics / design. The undertaking is positioned on a steep hillside, so the satisfactory positioning of the architectural program is important to guaranteeing a correct adaptation.
The staggering of its blocks favors an actual adaptation to the topography of the location, minimizing the impression to the soils and avoiding giant actions of land and costly retaining partitions. On the identical time, it capitalizes on the spectacular views of each the ocean and the dense pure panorama that surrounds it.
The center of Guarumo consists of a void, a fracture within the staggering of this system blocks, which turns into the social assembly level of the undertaking for each residents and friends. The idea of non-matter being the point of interest of this improvement is an intentional irony, because it forces the vegetation to turn into the protagonist.
This widespread space is provided with varied facilities, amongst them its infinity pool that displays an ideal sundown, the bar / bbq and its terrace that extends over the treetops. These present the right setting for a real relationship with nature and with the house, creating a singular expertise for its customers.
The undertaking is a mirrored image of the search that has marked our apply inn sustainable structure influenced by native and vernacular structure, with a real understanding of the land. Difficult a standard false impression in tropical design that tends to make use of non-long-lasting supplies within the spirit of a extra “pure” aesthetic, our revolutionary board shaped poured concrete proposal, although harder to execute, gives a low upkeep resolution that may stand the check of time.
Among the parts of sustainable structure applied are the strategic positioning of the pool as a supply of water within the course of the prevailing winds to cut back temperatures, using pure and native supplies reminiscent of uncovered concrete and wooden and the photo voltaic safety of the home windows by way of strong eaves.
Using giant openings from flooring to ceiling breaks the barrier between the inside and the outside to advertise pure air flow. Lastly, the incorporation of surrounding vegetation, the gathering of rainwater and remedy of sewage water for irrigation are a number of the passive methods for the event of a sustainable undertaking for a tropical context.
Thus, Guarumo is a symbiotic proposal that, past making an attempt to dominate the pure atmosphere, positions it as a focus, an empty house by way of which the obstacles between the constructed and the autochthonous are damaged, the discretion of the design and the imposition of the panoramic magnificence, setting the stage for social interplay and cultural mixing that happen integrally in shared areas.
