Casa Piscucha is a project completed in 2012 by Cincopatasalgato.
Casa Piscucha by Cincopatasalgato:
“Set atop of a hill in San Salvador, the environmentally conscious homeowners of La Piscucha wanted a house that felt like a trip residence, with touches of contemporary but sophisticated style. La Piscucha was developed with a series of decks organized around a central patio for the entertainment region. Major rooms of the house had been also oriented to maximize the effect of the view of San Salvador.
The living area, for instance, is connected to each and every area, opens up as a terrace and overlooks the mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Effortless green style ideas have been integrated, such as floor to ceiling windows for organic light and cross ventilation, water remedy for the sewage, and a separate treatment for the rainwater, lead lighting with connections for the installation of solar panels, and use of wood for the concrete pouring was reused for paneling outdoors the principal bedroom.
