Mako House 


Mako House has its origins in the Ocean Breeze Project, originally conceived for a hilly location in the north of Saint Lucia, the Caribbean in 2007. At the time the first steel house on the island, local builders preferred “traditional” concrete construction despite great economical advantages of the steel solution. The original design was hence changed and build as a concrete house (at great cost).

But since then the viability of the steel house has been proven and has become the new league for extraordinary houses as shown by Mathias former colleague and friend Ben Garcia Saxe in Costa Rica in his award winning steel designs. Mako House is a steel house system that can be adapted in size and configuration to the respective site conditions and clients brief. The designs profit from large spans to achieve spacious open spaces. Construction is fast, sustainable and economical compared to similar in situ construction works.
