Casa Mecano by Robles Arquitectos

This luxurious house, named Casa Mecano, was created by the San José based atelier Robles Arquitectos on a Puntarenas province peninsula in southwestern Costarica. Its location on a hill with stunning natural views allows all of the rooms to be opened up as much as possible. This means, that the interior space is separated from the outside only by a glass wall. The house utilizes an unique system of passive energy by means of a bioclimatic design in cooperation with automated processes such as adjustment of levels of natural ventilation, which regulates air quality and comfortable temperature inside. A distinct element of the house is the steel bearing structure suplemented with dividing white traverses. Along with the steel, the most used materials are wood and glass.
