Casa Kike - No More Writer's Block

Casa Kike – No More Writer’s Block

We’ve seen it in movies and in real life, that writers need a quiet place to come up with great ideas for their books. If you’ve been looking for the key elements for such a house, then we have Casa Kike located in Cahuita, Costa Rica (30 miles south of Puerto Limon).

Gianni Botsford from GB Architects used indigenous techniques and materials to build this modern looking house, for his father. The whole pavilion is built on a wooden structure with no vertical walls on the interior and consists of a main studio space, with a contemporary library, a writing desk and a grand piano. But Botsford doubled everything, because just a short distance along a raised walkway there’s another pavilion with the sleeping quarters and a bathroom.

It blends really well with the whole “neighborhood” and I’ll be honest I’d like to have a vacation home like Casa Kike. – via Cubeme
