Iseami House

This is has to be the summer house of the year! Simple, elegant, environment friendly and of course tranquil. Located on Playa Carate, Peninsula de Osa, Costa Rica, the Iseami House is the first 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 on 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. One important goal of the Iseami House was its recyclable potential, therefore, the material selection needed to be 100% recyclable at the end of its lifecycle, therefore, recycled plastic, glass and mainly the steel (structure and panels) have been choose for the project. Architecture and Design by Robles Arquitectos.
