Casa Mecano in Costa Rica

March 28th, 2012

RoblesArq designed this home in the Osas Peninsula of Costa Rica. The home has a very interesting interior ventilation system.

House Mecano is a body composed of a structure, a skin and a mechanism to adapt to their environment. The Concept of the residence arises in the use of passive strategies through bioclimatic design in synergy with an automation system that controls the appropriate levels of natural ventilation through open window systems and a pulley system that alter the position and inclination of the eaves manually, promoting thermal comfort and indoor air quality. The goal will be to maximize function in the smallest space possible.
