This project consists of a refurbishment, which has as its main objective to preserve the architectural legacy of the typical Costa Rican home. One of the concepts was to maintain the suggestion of this in the house’s original design. Thus, the design is based on an existing building which rescues the perimeter of the home, as well as the corridors and porches that surround it. This house is characterized by the warmth in the landscape, where the construction maintains its simplicity and harmony with the environment.

Materials such as wood, clay tiles, and stone are used according to the style, but at the same time, this has been combined with recent construction technology to create a symbiosis between the antiquated and the modern.
