Common Building - Alegria Village
The Common Building at Alegria Village was designed by CJI architect Jackie Quiroz. The Common Building is a focal point for residents of Alegria Village to come together to eat, play, party, and much more. The building has a communal kitchen, a beautiful pool and a hot tub overlooking the mountains of San Mateo, as well as lots of space to lounge about and enjoy the Pura Vida life.
The design concept for the Common Building was inspired by a bee hive. A bee hive is hexagonally shaped in order to allow for the optimal amount of surface area for a bee to cultivate honey. The Common Building brings residents, similar to bees, into a community where they are a collective. They make joint decisions, operate as a team, and have a creative ability to solve vital matters.
The design of the Common Building unites unique and beautiful architecture with a vibrant and flourishing community.
Yoga Building - Alegria Village

The building utilizes much of the materials that are found on the land, including palma and guanacaste.
