The Bilbo House is located on the lushes of the southern Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. The house forms a sanctuary retreat in Playa Chiquita. This house was designed by Benjamin Garcia. The environmentally sound 450 M2 family home is based on the principles behind collecting and shedding rain water. The temperature control is achieved through cross ventilation, ensuring that not air conditioning is required. While large overhangs protect the interior from the region’s hot sun, the project comprises lessons learned from the area’s vernacular architecture, incorporating local craftsmanship and ethically sourced materials. Each part of the home establishes a close relationship with the natural environment, with large terraces offering areas for relaxation and hospitality. The open-plan living accommodation is found at the second level, providing elevated views across the lush landscape.
