The Cinco Casas Houses Limit Disruption To The Natural Landscape

The Cinco Casas is a collection of conservation homes spread out on a two acre property that are specially designed in conjunction with the natural landscape and forest surrounding the area. The ecological building makes use of the sloped terrain as part of the structure, rather than working around it and levelling the ground.

The homes are all built on a one-level design using natural materials such as wood, glass and concrete. The abodes are modern with large bedrooms, a kitchen and terrace space while utilizing the natural forests to create seclusion between the nearby properties.

The practice of building in relation to the environment rather than transforming it to suit the architecture is a way consumers can be more eco-conscious in the design of structures.
