1268 (10") Caretaker's House. Category 04: Hybrid Houses and Buildings
SPG Architects: USA
This small home was built as a caretakers house in the jungles of Costa Rica. The lower floor, built of concrete and stucco, grounds the house and protects from the moisture of the rainforest floor, but it is the open and airy bamboo upper floor that gives the house its natural Central American feeling.
