Eco Hotel in Barahona – Eco-Friendly & Sustainable Cabins by César Langa

While a vacation into nature often inspires images of days meandering in the woods and relishing greenery, these sustainable cabins offer a different way to experience our ecosystem. Just imagine, you could wake up to a 360-degree view surrounded by hills and waterfalls or spend an evening admiring the birds flying around a suspended cabin. From striking A-frames to glass-clad cubes, located among some of the world’s most spectacular vistas, guests gain an immersive experience in the countryside without compromising modern-day comforts or incredible design.

The Architectural Masterpiece – Eco Hotel Barahona

Designed by César Langa, an established leader in the architectural field, this creative project aroused the idea of the architect for some foreign investors. It deals with self-sustaining cabins on a hill in Barahona, which is designed with the “surface runoff water harvesting” system implemented to reuse the rainwater that slides between the bamboo profiles of each bamboo facade. This rainwater is then used to flush toilets. It is estimated to keep all the trees in the area.

Each unit produces its electrical energy with solar panels designed by Tesla Motors and supplies to the low-consumption air conditioners. To insulate each cabin from the heat, thick walls of mud and clay are built, which, unlike cement, reduce environmental pollution.

The “A-frame” shape of the cabins helps keep them less hot due to their height. There are two windows provided at the top of each cabin that allows cross ventilation.

Once open to the public, the use of plastic bottles within the project will not be allowed.
