The main structure sits on a timber base, raised on the stilts. These rest on small concrete pad foundations, poured into individual pits. This method, along with much of the project has gleaned from the local labour force. GBA has also taken reference from native building styles and materials, rather than the western-influenced architecture favoured by wealthier Costa Ricans.

Gianni Botsford : London Architects
GBA’s success is built on its individuality. It is not a mammoth practice in which teams of draftsmen work and execute someone else’s bidding. It is a small, private firm – extremely flexible – able to design and supervise construction anywhere in the world: from the prize-winning Light House in Notting Hill to the Lubetkin Prize winner for Casa KiKé in Costa Rica, from a whole village in the hills of Taiwan to ingenious solutions for a New York skyscraper, a museum in Estonia or a telephone center in Haiti.
