Surrounded by lush greenery, I can only imagine how fresh the air must be. And with a fantastic view overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this home almost seems too good to be true... Designed by SPG Architects, Casa Torcida has the largest domestic solar array in Costa Rica, which provides enough energy for lighting, appliances, and miscellaneous equipment. In the future, this solar-derived power will also provide for the needs of a state-of-the-art recording studio, located on the bottom floor.
