  • Description

    Weekend house, built on an old orchard (coffee, bananas, mango and citrus trees), in a climate that includes rainy and dry seasons, the landscape is designed to minimize both runoff and irrigation. Cobbled pavers allow percolation of storm water; runoff passes through the orchard to an absorption well near the house. Grey water from the house is recycled  into  the  orchard  through  a sand  filter.
