Who says luxurious accommodations cannot be set in a sustainably responsible community? Elan at Ballena Beach and Terraces at San Martin are part of a greater network of luxury accommodations and amenities in the Coast Ballena area working together to support the local environment and community. These individual communities are created by Axiom Development group. In the conception of all of our Axiom communites, we have 5 standards that must be met before moving forward as a viable solution to balance development and nature. By working with our core principles to create these luxurious one of a kind accommodations our guests and residents get to experience nature at its purest while enjoying the comforts of home.
Axiom and Elan are working closely with the Costa Rican government to develop new programs that will allow all common areas of its development to run on solar power. As a result, the company’s Élan at Ballena Beach project will use solar energy to common power areas including swimming pools, elevators, exterior lighting, a commercial center, entry buildings, and recreation pavilions. Additionally, Axiom is sparing no expense by opting to install high- efficiency air conditioning systems in all of its units, ensuring a higher Seasonal Energy Efficient Ratio (SEER). Élan’s insulated building materials and lEd lighting further assist the cause, while sustainable design features, including the optimization of natural wind and sun patterns, also help to offset energy consumption. Within the luxurious confines of Axiom’s multi-million dollar mountaintop estates in the Sierra Collection, solar energy technology has also been installed in order to offset consumption from the grid for things like modern appliances and alarm systems. Axiom is raising the bar on sustainable living by incorporating contemporary comforts into environments where both man and nature can harmoniously co-exist. while history has left a
Wake of destruction in the path of man’s conquest of nature, Axiom’s extensive experience in sustainable development, and in Central America, is helping to
strike a delicate balance along the Costa Ballena coast. Within the parameters of that delicate balance, the company is employing painstaking measures to ensure the preservation of the natural beauty that brought us to Costa Rica in the first place, while disproving the misconception that sustainable living must be something less than luxurious.
