Green Architecture – Five Basic House Designs
Solar Vistas is a small development, consisting of five hectares (12 acres) of rolling hills, including 6 hilltops, bordered on two sides by a seasonal stream (it’s dry in the dry season). The development is subdivided into eight lots, half of which are already sold to a single buyer.
The following are examples of eco-houses I designed, with approximate construction costs here in our part of Costa Rica, for your inspiration. These prices don’t include the cost of the lot itself. Not all these houses will work on every lot since each lot is so unique, it calls for a unique house to best create privacy and beautiful views.
