With the collaboration of architect Patrick Rey, we imagined an eco-village for children as a place of hope. Weaving the threads of varied human experiences and beliefs into one organic home encouraging kindness, acceptance, and compassion.


5 hectares land

We acquired 5.2 hectares of pristine land and river in Cobano..




There is considerable space to build and expand, along with growing fruit trees and exotic flowers, as well as an organic garden. The construction is fully ecological and sustainable. The foundation of each house will be set without having to excavate or use concrete plates. Instead, wooden poles made with locally grown timber will be used, and the floors will be made from locally sourced teakwood. Padding and Insulation will be made from Lime panels with Bagasse fibre (sugar cane waste) provided by Greenlab Costa Rica. The roof of each house will be made from Recycled PVC roof sheets with low heat transfer and storage. The village is designed integrating the concept of cross ventilation and low environmental impact.
