Vida en Contenedores –

Life in Containers

Read Full Article

This home designed by Costa Rican architect Benjamin Garcia Saxe is located just outside and only twenty minutes from the capital city of San Jose. The decision to be “adventuresome”  and build with containers – proposed by Garcia and seconded by the couple living there – was not an economic success but it has also become a reference point for esthetics of new national architecture. With two containers and a higher roof built from the material left over when constructing the windows, Garcia created a sense of interior openness, at the same time that he provided for cross ventilation. The sunrise and sunset views in this beautiful paradise where the finishing touches on an exemplary project.
