Käpäcläjui Training Center is located on the Indian reservation of Tayutic, Turrialba, in the province of Cartago, Costa Rica. It includes a training center and hostel that facilitates interaction between locals and visitors, and develops sustainable community projects in harmony with the environment. In turn, the Center is part of a strategic system of rural integration and community strengthening including roads, caves and trails. Additionally, we design a network of pedestrian bridges that make some sections accessible at critical times of the year and can provide temporary shelter. The Hostel project consists of 470 m2 distributed within a 'large linear layout' along its longitudinal axis. It comprises on the first level administrative areas (offices), multipurpose rooms, dining, kitchen, restrooms, computer room, library and warehouses. In the double height of the front part it incorporates a 'mezzanine' as a area that provides temporary shelter.
