Our Costa Rica casa can be your casa.
If you're in the market for a vacation home, stop looking - we've found it for you!
Located in a gated community in the very exclusive area in Escazu, San Jose, this 2016 built home is situated on a 1008 m2 site at the highest point on a hill. The vertical construction home is a multipurpose space surrounded by large windows and easy access to the outdoors. It was not only named "one of the best Latin American sites in architecture" by Arch Daily, but also deemed energy saving due to its design and detail.
The building program is divided into three levels. The third floor, which houses the bedrooms, provides the main volume. In spite of its heaviness, this floor appears to float in the air thanks to a strategic use of materials, shapes, and tonality; this volume is held up by concrete columns on the second level that starts out wide and ends in a thin steel union. The main access to the residence on the main floor is through a suspended bridge. This bridge recalls childhood playfulness and yields onto a balcony that envelops the main social area. The bridge acts as an invitation to discover the distant landscape, guiding entrants towards the inside of the house.
