This curvy, sexy, Italian-designed villa is La Dolce Vita in the heart of Guanacaste's Gold Coast.
With around 3500sf of construction, including the pool, Casa Italia is situated on a hillside above Flamingo Bay. Interior design features such as the suspended stairway and glass shower partitions impart a feeling of lightness. Custom concrete bathroom sinks and vanities as well as extensive use of soffits add architectural interest to the minimalist theme.
The highly sloped lot called for a fairly substantial foundation and multiple levels and required careful engineering. Curved terraces were made possible by “scoring” the steel framing in order to bend it to shape.
The Owner is very pleased with the home’s very low energy consumption, helped by great airflow and the fully insulated steel frame construction.
