Location: Pelada Beach, Nosara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
Date of Completion: 2017
Client: Private Residence.
A few steps from the beach, in Pelada Sur is this set of two studios immersed in a tropical garden.
The space determined to locate these small housing units was designed and arranged in order to have green space all around the project. The project adapts to the tropical environment with some elements of the Caribbean architecture; the studies were raised in columns; no divisions were used inside the rooms for ventilation and lighting to flow into the space and superior ventilation was placed through windows in the upper parts of the doors and windows.
The long eaves and the ceilings also create for a very tropical architecture, with slopes towards all the elevations that help for shade in the terraces.
