The property is located in front of the Ostional Wildlife Refuge in Guiones Beach. La Negra is a hotel that was created from the remodeling of two existing buildings, the headquarters of the Civic Association of Nosara and a house next to it.
The program was created based on existing spaces in which the main building became a restaurant on the first level and a loft on the second. The concept was based on the recycling of the materials of the existing buildings in which they wanted to use a dark color and textured finishes for the exterior to have a greater harmony with its surrounding.
Black plantation bamboo was brought from the southern area of the country and used for this exterior texturized finish. Inside, a white clean color was used to contrast with the exterior and in the same way open the space with clarity creating a warmer atmosphere.
