Mecano House is located in Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica and was designed by architect ROBLESARQ. The architect expects to maximize this single story house’s function in the smallest space possible while at the same time, dealing with the inclination of the site and its position. Creating a comfortable house, it was necessary to use bio-climatic design with passive thermal and ventilation. The strategies were the use of automatic-controlled natural ventilation through open window systems and pulley system to synergize with the design of the structure. The design of the structure itself consists of huge glass walls and windows and an inclined roof. It also provides more passive lighting and view.
The front side features pool and wooden deck with amazing valley views. The sloping roof expands the volume to the front where large glass walls, windows and doors are used to capture the beautiful landscape view. There, the large overhang of the roof provides some shade to the wonderful wooden deck just before the pool. The landscaping for the house seems simple yet wonderful to look at. The lawn looks open and spacious while the house itself sits on a raised foundation with pool at the most inclined terrain. The front courtyard features pebble hardscaping with white and grey pebbles. The front side is a single story house with low roof and high metal awning for the front entrance door. The front façade looks simple with white wall and looks natural as well with wooden garage door, entrance door and wooden porch.
The inclined roof helps to make the interior design feels fresh and spacious. The sloping roof that expands the front side provides ample space for big clerestory windows. The styling as a whole is minimalist yet warmth. The wall is white with some wood accent and wood floor. The furniture is grey including the large sofa, the dining chairs and the stools for the kitchen island. A bedroom is spacious and features large glass walls and doors. A wooden bed gives a warmth ambiance to the room and the colorful bedding looks so awesome. The bedrooms there looks elegant and classy. The brown wall looks so amazing and the small floating sink looks fancy. A larger bathroom features glass wall with direct view to the pool and the landscape view. The ambiance of the bathroom also looks warmth with the wooden floating vanity. ROBLESARQ. Photos / Pictures by Andrés García Lachner.
