Construction is concrete slab walls, floor and ceiling. Elevator opens directly into the apartment and the elevator door and main entrance door are secured by Multi-Lock. Additional security is provided by push button electromagnetic door locking system that exerts 600 pounds per square inch and is backed up by emergency batteries incase of electrical failure. The doors are handmade to order and are covered in Costa Rican cow hides.
The entrance lobby is paneled with full sized Italian marble slabs and the marble moldings and joining edges are fashioned in the classical French style seen in such places as Versailles Palace. These slabs are large and it takes a special skill to install them and this type of work is not seen much in modern day Costa Rican construction projects. The lobby lamps are by Promemoria, one of the most highly acclaimed Italian design houses and are made of bronze in limited number.
No expense was spared in collecting the finest furniture, surface materials, lamps and light fixtures. All these items are of the top Italian design houses without exception. Most of the furniture is by BandB Italia and Maxalto. They are the recognized leaders in modern interior decoration and furniture design. The sofa is designed by Paolo Piva for BandB Italia, the Andy sofa looks and feels great. Its clever design incorporates an easy to operate mechanism. Its seats can be moved forward, converting this sofa into a chaise longue, or even, if both seats are moved, to a bed.
Bathroom toilets, bidets and sinks are made by Duravit. Porcelain towel racks and master bathroom accessories are made by Boffi. All glass mosaic tiles in the kitchen and the bathrooms are by Bisazza, one of the most authoritative luxury design brands, and a world leader in the production of glass mosaics for the decoration of interiors.
