Homes sculpted around breeze and airflow. Styro walls are made here in Costa Rica, plus this style of construction reduces the usage of concrete, rebar and wood by 60%. It’s a fun and affordable home. The owners want to finish the woodwork themselves and are moving in soon. It’s a spacious floor plan with big bedrooms and big windows. An adorable pre-fab home built on the Osa Peninsula with Teak and Columbian Guadua Bamboo, delivered and constructed on site where owners wait for water and electricity at Osa Mountain Village in Southern Costa Rica. Thanks Mike and Alejandro, for all your help!  Bio-Inspired Architecture in Costa Rica. Here’s another fun recycled material and styro project. Mimicking Tesla – New European streamlined architecture that’s affordable to build with. Copying the curves in nature around every corner.

Introduction
Costa Rica Architects, eco friendly homes and house designs. Costa Rica house plans, blueprints and fantasy tree houses,design and built. I draft house floor plans, blueprints and home designs. I work with homeowners and lodge owners who support sustainable designs. Build using renewable lumber from Teak plantations, bamboo, recyclables, re usable materials. This new building method reduces hardwood usage by 65%, and reduces the amount of sand and gravel needed by as much as 55%.

Sacred Geometry and Fibonacci ? 
Does anybody understand this stuff.  What does it all mean?

It’s actually pretty simple let’s take a look. Sacred geometry or Fibonacci is a sequence of numbers found in the branching patterns in trees, leaves, shells, anatomy, climate and in geology. The distribution of feathers, seeds and the tributaries in a river are based on Fibonacci numbers. The Fibonacci sequence is a set of numbers that starts with zero, followed by a one, and proceeds based on the rule that each number. This is called the  Fibonacci sequence.

 Each number is equal to the sum of the preceding two numbers. Ok, so   0, followed by 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 ... and so on, you arrive to Sacred geometry 101. Sounds complicated but the Fibonacci sequence is part of an important clue to healthy living.

Here are some construction photos of our Nikola Tesla Swimming Pool I am just finishing up, like a ram pump, it will circulate water in perpetuity, and only need a primer pump to jump start it on a full moon night.

Waters and Air memory is caused by the shape, form and texture it flows by. Sounds a bit crazy, because it is crazy, but true.

Let's ask nature - Your custom home design or lodge project should function as nature does. Your builder or construction activity should enhance the environment, provide employment and support conservation, educating impoverished areas within your community. These observations of how nature acts teach us about our neighbors in nature, all finding passive cooling and living comfortable in the world.

In Boquete, These 2 rental cottages are awesome ! Below the volcana and located on a small creek loaded with birds and wildlife. You can hear the howler monkeys close by and it must be the quietest neighborhood in Boquete, Panama. Her vacation rental cabins, sometimes referred to as casitas, apartments or rental units are brand new on the market, with private baths and great kitchens. Only 10 minute walk to bus, and 3 minute drive to Boquete. There are chocolate and coffee tours close by or adventure out and go rafting and zip lining. I stayed there for 3 weeks and loved every minute. If you are looking for a long term vacation rental, this is the spot for birders, nature lovers and people looking for quiet accommodations. Thanks Marni, your awesome !!

As the designer and builder of this 6 story treehouse, I can say with certainty, all your childhood dreams about living in a treehouse can come true. Lapas Nest Treehouse took 9 months to build and does not touch or harm tree in any way. Treehouse sleeps 6-8 and can be rented weekly. Green season you can rent for 4 days and still have time for tours and fun rainforest hikes. Monkeys, Kinkajous and sloths pass by. Also views of Corcovado National Park and the Golfo Dulce. Highly recommended for those seeking adventure and higher vacation experience.

As the architect and owner of this home, the rainforest surrounding me inspires me to be my creative best. With every sunrise over the Golfo Dulce, coffee and a dip in the pool, my day unfolds with the sites and sounds of the rainforest here on The Osa Peninsula in Southern Costa Rica. Come and stay with us at Lapas Vacation Home Rental, just 15 min. North of Puerto Jimenez. See and Experience Natures all inclusive destination - OSA.
