Sustainable Modern Home in Costa Rica: Areopagus Residence | Design | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com | random stuff | Scoop.it

Paravant Architects have designed the Areopagus Residence located in Atenas, Costa Rica. The main objective of the project development team was to create a home that would best communicate with the surrounding landscape:”Villa Areopagus sits modestly on the site, shrouded in the surrounding vegetation. The street facing facade is largely opaque – a massive concrete wall with selective punctures that only provide a glimpse of the interior. The openings are strategically placed to provide the house with cross ventilation and natural cooling. The private facade faces south and features transparent glazing which allows for complete views of the valley towards San Jose”. The residence features renewable energy sources, such as solar and photovoltaic systems and an on-site micro waste-water-treatment plant for irrigation. Find this project’s design approach captivating?

littlebytesnews's curator insight, May 4, 2013 4:31 AM

If he cared about jobs back home he wouldn't be pushing amnesty on us!!

 

Also,less than 20% see amnesty/immigration reform a top issue. It's still about fixing the economy with over 40% seeing this as a main priority but does this admin care?? No, they are so driven by a political ideology and goal to give citizenship to more illegals before 2014 that we won't have a GOP house nor POTUS again! If amnesty passes before the next election in 2014, we are doomed!

Chloe and Devynne's curator insight, December 2, 2013 10:19 AM

This talks about Mexico's political and how Barack Obama took a trip to the politically powerful Latino area.
