One House Shines Above the Rest... in Costa rica

Categories: Tiny House

As a house of minimal dimensions it will barely incorporate a trajectory inside it, instead it will be the destination and summary of the necessary journeys for the owner to move to this place,  which involved anticipation and nostalgia until the house became the definitive residence.  Thus it is a collection of the built facts observed during those trips. 

The house has simple double faceted roof, it is based in the dimension of "varas" (an old unit of measure equivalent to 0.84 meters), has gates of overlapping slats that offer options for light control.

Canvases over the deck and concrete slabs outside the bedrooms  make the light bounce twice, get stained and lose heat before coming into the house, this allows for a closer connection with the natural cycles, as the surfaces accentuate the blue light of the morning and the orange light of the afternoon to make waking up and going to bed easier. 

Under the same concept, it is possible to see the moon from the master bedroom when it is low in the sky thanks to V shaped polycarbonate ceiling.
