have designed the Hamann residence between the hills and adorable seashores of Costa Rica’s southern element, the province of Puntarenas. in contrast to the relaxation of the villas constructed via foreigners within the vicinity, the Hamann residence (otherwise called Villa Cascadas on Airbnb) become now not designed to emulate the “Spanish fashion” that has nothing to do with the herbal context of the area. This residence become designed as a cutting-edge residing that respects the tropical environment and affords a robust connection to its surroundings, further superior by using the lovely sea perspectives.
between the hills and beaches of the southern part of Costa Rica, Hamann residence rises (additionally referred to as Villa Cascadas), immersed inside the herbal international that characterizes this region.
The homes that foreigners normally build on this area are on the whole “Spanish style” or “neoclassical”, that not anything has to do with the natural and climatic context of this place, so don’t paintings correctly in terms of consolation. happily we have been able to layout a modern-day mission that still respects the tropical characteristics of this quarter.
The residence changed into designed from a non-stop axis that connects the access to the property with the main visible, fed through the high-quality view closer to the sea, the mangroves and the mountain.
Its design changed into assisted by using techniques that maximize its operation whilst promoting the saving of assets and strength. therefore, go air flow and herbal light are a steady, further, the implementation of solar panels and consuming water storage system. amongst different characteristics, we can mention its prominent peak, which gives the spaces of extra comfort and freshness because the residence is placed in a warm-humid place, so the rapid expulsion of the hot air have to be assured.
The terrace ground is made from non-slip porcelain tile and the liner of the facet partitions in stone.
The wood used in the creation, from the pergola to the fixtures and the ceiling, is cedar and guapinol duly cured. most people of its excessive enclosures are made up of petatillo (a timber mesh) next to mosquito mesh; this remaining is also located in each door and window as secondary panel, so whilst opened they have got the choice of keeping the space protected from bugs while being kept ventilated.
