HERMAN HARNECKER, is a retired architect, who came to live in COSTA RICA in 1971. He was born in Santiago, Chile, and studied architecture there; in 1970 he decided to leave the country. So after looking around the caribean, arrived to COSTA RICA and was able to work in architectural design of all tipe of buildings and homes. The CUSUCA is his last home, where he lives part time escaping from Chilean winter!
This house is built underground, opening to a nice tropical garden in the lower part of the lot, away from the public street.
Most of its windows and openings are curved, so the diferent views in the inside or towards the outside are always very nice and interesting.
The grass covered concrete roof makes the house comfortable all day, and silent always! The big covered terrace can be used for breakfast, lunch, or happy hour at night!
The whole house will be for you to use, with the only exception of a tiny "bodega" or storage space at the tail of the washing area!
I will be reacheable thru e-mail, or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) in any of my phones;
as I can be in Chile or in Costa Rica,take note of the 2 phone numbers I use;
CHILE +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) COSTA RICA +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)
ONE VERY IMPORTANT SECURITY POINT IS THAT THE CUSUCA´S WINDOWS AND GLASS SLIDING DOORS HAVE METAL ROLLERS AT THE OUTSIDE THAT WE STRONGLY RECOMEND TO CLOSE AT NIGHT AND EVERY TIME YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE.
The 2 main rollers at bedroom and living rooms are motorized!
The 2 smaller and lighter at kitchen/dinig area are hand rolled.
