The Dragonfly Project
Inspired by the flight of a dragonfly searching the tropical forest of Costa Rica.
The visit of an elemental being called a dragonfly, who subtly took flight in the direction of the tropical forest where the land to intervene is located, connects us with the behavior of its wings when flying. It inspires us to have an openness full of confidence and to explore, live and feel our natural ecosystem in harmony with its surroundings. That was the clearest message we received and it is what we seek to convey to our clients through our architectural proposal.
This project became even more interesting when we were asked to introduce and apply the Vastu Shastra theory, where each natural lighting and ventilation opening works in conjunction with the position of the house, playing with the cardinal points and each measure adapting to what we see. indicates the spirituality of this concept.
