Michel Lewis, architect for Playa Viva, sent this photo of the one-bedroom casita (suite). Photo was taken during his visit last week. The frame of the casitas is made of bamboo (highly renewable materials which have been planted at Playa Viva). The palapero has just started to work on the thatched roof hut made from palm fronds harvested from plants within Playa Viva as well (again using highly renewable materials). This photo is taken from the tapanco, the second story above the kitchen in the common area. The roof is also up on the common area and the pool is being poured. Playa Viva is progressing at a rapid pace. Below is the 3-D image from the original AutoCAD drawings superimposed over the photo above, showing what the Casita will begin to look like when completed. Missing are the surrounding vegetation and some other details. We hope you will come visit us this season.
