Las Ventanas de Playa Grande Architecture

Nestled in the heart of Guanacaste province, surrounded by rare tropical dry forest, Las Ventanas embraces a crucial responsibility: not merely to safeguard but to foster and protect the delicate ecosystems of Guanacaste—one of the last remaining expanses of tropical dry forest on the planet.

At the core of Las Ventanas is a philosophy asserting that architecture should harmonize with and adapt to the community’s natural terrain rather than imposing change upon it. This approach, known as tropical contemporary architecture, ensures that development seamlessly integrates with the surrounding landscapes.

In practical terms, Las Ventanas’ homes make a conscientious effort to adjust their plans and architectural designs, preserving the essence of their environment. Your residence will seamlessly acclimate to the native climate and precious ecosystem, safeguarding the trees, flora, landscapes, and terrain that ensure Costa Rica and Guanacaste’s irreplaceable biodiversity throughout the annual cycle of lush green season and sun-drenched dry season.

This commitment translates into energy-efficient homes featuring ample cross-ventilation, natural light, expansive overhangs, large sliding glass doors, and sheltered alfresco verandas. The overarching goal is to minimize your environmental and energy footprint, both reducing your electricity bill and providing indoor/outdoor spaces for your enjoyment, regardless of rain or shine.
