A beautiful bamboo retreat located in Costa Rica. Designed by architect Benjamin Garcia Saxe for his mother. This open air construction and the large overhanging tin roofs allow for natural ventilation but still provide ample shade from the hot sun. The foundation is poured concrete and the structure is formed with steel, while the bamboo rings are covered in burlap to provide more shade and protection. In total, the small jungle home in Guanacoste, Costa Rica cost $40,000 to construct.
