Reverence for the rainforest was top priority in the villa’s design. In every way possible, from the minimized footprint by building vertically to the overall concept of blurring the line between indoor and outdoor space, created a unique design like no other and to this day implementing sustainable practices.
Transitioning This Unique Design From Concept To Reality Proved Challenging…
Phase One of the project began with the construction of the meticulously detailed, guest cottage. It would not be until years later and after extensive planning and structural steel pre-fabrication that Phase Two of construction on the main villa would begin. From an elaborate foundation and retention system built directly onto excavated bedrock to the logistics necessary to transport entire 3-story sections of girders and formed-columns to the site the project was complex.
Once the structure was completed we then incorporated as many recycled and locally-sourced building materials as possible. Recycled glass was utilized in the villa’s exterior and innovative roofing tiles made from recycled plastic bags were selected. Only sustainably-harvested teak wood was sourced for every artisan-crafted wood element and detail throughout as was locally quarried rose-sandstone. These are just a few of the elements incorporated in the villa’s design that truly make Punto de Vista unique and a complement to it surroundings for our future guests.
