“Casa Amate” was designed to comfortable harbor a small family or individual within all the necessary environments in the most efficient spacing. In these case, 2 homes were built with the purposes of renting them, in a beautiful natural setting. These 2-storey homes reduce their footprint by taking advantage of vertical spaces. Large windows and a large balcony allow plentiful natural lighting and its spaces to be extended to the outside. The first level was built from cinder block and the second one entirely from bamboo. One can appreciate the beauty of the combination of materials and finishes, creating a unique style, both natural and modern. Like every CASSA home, it integrates all elements of sustainability: rainwater capture, water cistern for storage, pump for redistribution inside the house, solar panels, LED lighting, efficient smokeless stove, gray water separation and reutilization in a family garden, and an underground black water treatment system.
