As a LEED Platinum hotel, Safari Surf School’s HQ has many unique sustainable design and construction features, the coolest of which is probably the recycled glass mosaic of a sunset at Playa Guiones on their wall. Olas Verdes and Safari Surf worked with the ladies at the Nosara Recycling Center and two local artists to determine which colors they wanted to use and what brands of alcohol matched their color palette. After saving 55 gallon drums of each color for several months at a time for each mural, the local artists were able to delicately build the mosaic of Playa Guiones over the course of one month. Their office also features an upcycled surfboard art piece by Erik Kuzbard and their deck is made with recycled plastic made in Costa Rica.
