WATERFALL HOUSE

Laboratory Sustaining Design (LSD Architects) as Architects

This house was designed for rental purposes on a very steep slope topography overlooking the tamarindo bay. In order to take full advantage of the topography, the spaces of this house were distributed in 4 different levels in order to offer the 7 bedrooms and all the social areas an amazing view of playa tamarindo and playa langosta. Each room is connected to balconies or terraces facing the ocean increasing the exposure to the views. Balconies, terraces and handrails work as a bioclimatic system that filters the sun light from the west during the afternoons. the interior social areas of the house are located at the street level with an amazing view, and the six bedrooms on the two lower levels are connected to the pool areas which also have an amazing view. The master bedroom is placed on the top floor surrounded by balcony areas that also take advantage of the bay view. the exposed facades of the top floors are filtered by the bioclimatic wood skin that protects the structure from the direct sun light. This house was designed and built with an hybrid structural system that uses solid concrete foundations, and concrete block walls on the first 2 levels of the house. the social areas at the street level have a combination of concrete and steel and the top floor walls are a light metal frame with an exterior wood veneer. The layout of this house and the design of the windows give natural cross ventilation and natural illumination to all the rooms.
