Casa Leon is an affordable, earthy and cool rural home.

Casa Leon consists of three airy and bright rooms joined by a single vertex. This layout makes the home’s interior spaces feel connected yet separate at the same time. Big windows offer amazing countryside views while providing enough ventilation and natural light to keep residents comfortable and cool.

The winding green roof has a waterproof drainage membrane underneath as well as an expanded polystyrene layer that keeps the building insulated, saving energy used for heating and cooling in the winter and summer. The walls were built from galvanized steel, plasterboard and expanded polystyrene. Casa Leon is an affordable, earthy and cool rural home.

    Fort de Roovere is the name of this Moses Bridge. I’ve seen this article many times but you guys don’t seem to have gotten the name right. Please fix it.
