A Forest For a Moon Dazzler in Playa Avellanas, Guanacaste, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architect

Friday, March 11th, 2011

The house was self built. The wood for the terraces and closet and kitchen walls was cut from trees on site; hence every piece is different from the next.

The Bamboo was cut from a family farm during full moon, then submerged in Diesel in order to cure it and dried under shade. Later it was cut into 15cm pieces and finished in maritime varnish.
