Casa Incubo was realized with a thought for the sustainable development , it includes a rainwater collection system, its roof is decorated with solar panels and the interior is lit with a LED system low power consumption. To minimize the need for air conditioning, the salient roofs protect the home from the sun and large windows provide the necessary ventilation to combat the heat and humidity of Costa Rica. Due to the nature of the house, Casa Incubo was erected in one day only, reducing construction costs by 20%.

This is really an unusual house that has managed to register with its environment by incorporating into its design an imposing cedar tree that has become the focal point of design. Inspired by the tree, the architect has also incorporated some wood elements in the interior staircase and bamboo sun visors. The living room exudes contrast with the multicolored furniture choices of bohemian style which breathes a very warm side to the metallic decor. It's audacious and we love it!
