Inspiration – Bruno Stagno

Bruno Stagno is an architect from Costa Rica who designs for the tropics.

The use of climbing plants for bio-shading (creating cooler buildings and outdoor spaces) is known in this country too – but these are stunning examples.

He said he enjoys living “in close contact with the exterior environment and enjoy the sensation of openness and connection to nature this brings.”
