Proyect Details
The project is located in Samara, province of Guancaste, Costa Rica. The house is formed from two basic volumes which are connected in a single moon shape. The geometry of the site and the tree already existing are the starting point of the conception of the whole project. The idea was to realise a project wich embrace his context and dialog with the landscape all around. The special geometries with a range of diferent circle allow to connect all the spaces of the house to the ocean view. The simple use of material reinforce the bold design and give a true sense of the volumes and spaces. Materials will be selected to sustain in time and be eficient for a low maintenaince. The villa will have diferent uses and adapt perfectly to all the needs of our clients.
  1. Transparency from front to back as a way to express humility.
  2. Clarity of simple shapes and volumes to understand the space.
