Green living homes: what are they?

In short, green living homes are eco-friendly inspired homes. These houses are built in such a way that they are energy-efficient leaving a very small carbon footprint by using less energy, water, and natural resources. 

Some of the features that green living homes have are eco-conscious designs allowing natural cross ventilation and lighting, the use of energy-efficient appliances and cooling systems; locally and with solar energy produced carpentry, insulation to control the temperature; and more.

A green living home is both conscientious of the environment around them and of the health of their inhabitants. Moreover, the homeowners’ budgets are being spared since the energy and water consumption is less which translates into economizing costs. 

Due to the quality of our tropical green living homes, they are more durable, which in the long run is saving our clients from repairing or remodeling costs. Furthermore, with climate change developing at full speed, it is obvious that green living homes will be the norm in the future (or they should be!): 77% of people want to learn how to live more sustainably, according to this survey

Green living homes at Tamarindo Park: sustainability and luxury

Who doesn’t love the “good things” in life? Who doesn’t enjoy beautiful constructions, comfort, and modern design? Is this possible without harming the ecosystem around us?

Our answer is yes, and Tamarindo Park is the perfect example. We build exquisite luxury homes in Costa Rica, steps away from the ocean, surrounded by acres of wild nature, preserving the land and the eco-diversity around them. 

One of the keys to this achievement is, of course, the materials we use. We select each provider according to our standards of high quality and alignment with nature. Let’s take a look at them:

  • Concrete blocks by Armabloque: this is a Costa Rican company with more than 10 years in the business that provides construction materials to the biggest real estate developers. Their well planned out system reduces waste production as well as time of construction.
  • Italian floor tiles by Mirage: this Italian company with more than 45 years of experience and presence in 160 countries designs and produces porcelain stoneware floors and coverings. Through solid expertise and “know-how”, Mirage is able to install ceramic solutions that can enhance any design theme in an environmentally-friendly manner. They give a special touch to our luxury homes in Costa Rica.
  • Faucets, sinks, and locks by Kohler Co.: since 1873, this company has been improving the level of gracious living by providing exceptional products and services. They believe that better business and a better world go hand-in-hand, so they strive to enhance the quality of life for current and future generations through design, craftsmanship, innovation, and a strong company culture against inequality and racism, aiming to make a positive contribution to the communities they serve. 
  • Closets and cabinets from Na Lakalú: the name of this company means “resting place” in Maleku, one of the indigenous languages from Costa Rica. They develop refined pieces that enhance rest and improve the overall home experience. In order to decrease their environmental impact, they grow 1000 trees a year for their production and study in order to avoid deforestation. Na Lakalu only works with providers that share their sustainability vision for the business. Additionally, they have installed a solar energy system to sustain their activity using clean energy. We are more than happy to have Na Lakalu’s unique and sustainable furniture as part of our green living homes.
  • Air conditioner from Mitsubishi ACs: this renowned company provides superior comfort, lower energy costs, zero emissions, and ultra-quiet heating and air conditioning in any climate. Their units use the exact amount of energy needed to heat or cool an area, making their systems up to 40% more efficient than traditional alternatives. They contribute to a more sustainable society by developing and promoting energy-saving electric products and systems that will reduce the use of fossil fuels in the heating and cooling industry.
  • Windows from Bella Vida/Eurovista: this Costa Rican company provides, in their own words, “better products for better living” which are designed to withstand the seasonal demands of the tropics and are backed by some of the most comprehensive warranties available in Costa Rica. With double glass panels and technology of the highest quality allowing sound and heat insulation, Bella Vida provides the best windows available on the market. 
  • Roofs from RoofLand: this local company operates in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama, meeting high quality, security, and compliance standards. Their specific way of building the roofs increases the insulation of the home, which translates into energy saving. 
  • Illumination by Lumen: this Costa Rican company works with prestigious European and U.S. brands that have international certifications. Their designs and luminaires optimize energy savings to contribute to economic and environmental sustainability.
  • Landscaping of homes by IM Paisajismo landscaping: this Costa Rican company makes the most beautiful designs and landscaping using only native vegetation to prevent having a negative impact on the surrounding ecosystem. The result is harmonic, natural gardens that delight your soul.

At Tamarindo Park, we believe we can have it all: green living homes that are at the same time luxury homes in this wonderful paradise of  Costa Rica.
