Gallery: Beautiful KOKi Beach in Costa Rica Embraces the Environment Wi...

 

Capturing the essence of Costa Rica and its sustainable spirit, KOKi Beach embraces the environment and community in which it rests through a wide range of eco practices. Working principally with local materials, artisans and by incorporating mostly reused, reclaimed and repurposed elements, they created a unique haven for locals and visitors to enjoy. Local river stones were used for the building support as well as the bar’s back bar wall, while the lamps are a combination of carvings by the local indigenous community in Bribri and a local artisan who specializes in beadwork. Even wood from an abandoned house in Hone Creek now serves as tables and seating for the restaurant, as well as a decorative entry feature. KOKi Beach is a showcase of local craftsmanship, and exemplifies how using the knowledge and traditions of the community can create a modern and environmentally friendly space.
