Robles Architects have sent us a recently completed project, the ISEAMI House in Playa Carate, Península de Osa, Puntarenas, Costa Rica. The house is the first stage of the ISEAMI institute (Institute of sustainability, ecology, art, mind and investigation). The house is the main area of the institute, therefore, it’s design will serve as a multifunctional place in order to host activities as Investigation, meditation, training, Yoga and joy at the terrace located in the first level. At the same time, the Institute director will habit the house on the second level. This way, possible functions are maximized on the smallest possible area. (more…)

Visit the website of X2 Koh Samui – here for more informations and images. (more…)
