Gianni Botsford house : casa kike

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.
