RSHP architect wins 'World's Best Private House'
A design for a dwelling in Costa Rica by RSHP’s Benjamin Garcia Saxe has won the ‘World’s Best Private House’ award at the prestigious World Architecture Festival (WAF) Awards 2010. The bamboo house sits within the Costa Rican rainforest and its cone-like surface is designed to open up at night to give the occupier - who is the architect’s mother - a direct view of the moon, hence its title: ‘A Forest for a Moon Dazzler’.
The design was conceived while Ben was at university and constructed during two consecutive winter breaks.
Ben joined RSHP in 2007 and is currently working on a major luxury residential development in Hong Kong.
