Ecological design is our key to including the incredible natural beauty of Costa Rica in a living space while creating a comfortable and safe home. We design around our client's needs and desires, according to the available budget. From the simplest, humble design to the finest, finished homes in the zone.
Our business has been built on the consistent performance and unrelenting attention to detail that is so vital when building custom homes. We are committed to maintaining the highest level of craftsmanship. Through solid, honest construction, our goal is to produce beautiful structures, while creating innovative, functional living spaces.
We have as our mission that we will reduce the environmental impact on every project that we work on. Construction can be a wasteful and destructive process. Using sustainable materials and methods we seek to build clean and environmentally friendly Living Spaces.
We are very serious about our commitment to planet Earth, to Costa Rica, and to our children. We like to ask the question "How can we find balance in this project?" which leads to a delightful and interesting conversation in carbon signature, reduced impact, renewable material selection and sustainability. Building a reduced impact home is not just a matter of a single event; it is a whole lifetime of choice.
Integrated systems are often the vehicle that can be used to seek answers to these important questions. The basic concept is that in order to properly weigh impact, one has to look at the whole picture and make decisions based around this holistic view.
While building a home, this becomes real from the very beginning. What are the functions of the home. Where will the home be situated? How is it oriented? Who are the neighbors and how will they fit into the picture? Where does the water come from and where does the waste water go? What possible impacts can be anticipated from installing the infrastructure? What choices can be made that will reduce these impacts?
Living Space differs from many builders in that we are a cooperative building group. Each person who works with us is considered an independent entity that is helping to serve our clients while being entitled to a portion of all profits. We do not have employees as such, but prefer to think of ourselves as a collection of builders and artisans. This program has proved to be highly successful, providing a high standard of living for sixteen families, creating an intense sense of loyalty within our team, and giving our clients an excellent product.
One of the many benefits to our clients is that you are guaranteed a labor cost from the outset of the project. There are no hidden costs that will show up throughout the build.
