Bamboo lattice in Costa Rica [476]

This wonderful residence was awarded "the best house in the world" and probably deserves it. Obviously it could only be built in an easy-to-live weather, like Costa Rica’s, but the delicacy of its innovative solutions, space comfort, intelligence of its construction and the quality of its architecture make it worthy of that title. 

<p><span lang="EN-GB">The house was built for the mother of the architect, to which he devoted the following lines: "Every morning when opening the bamboo window, she sees sunlight and remembers me / During his long summer siestas, while swinging in the hammock of her garden and the breeze caresses her face, she closes her eyes and dreams I'm there / Finally I think I wanted to be an architect to make a house for my mother.” He calls it "a forest to an admirer of the moon".</span></p>
