Located on a mountainside of Uvita, Costa Rica overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this project was designed to become the client’s retreat from the winter weather. Upon approach, the steep grade of the mountain is minimized when accessing a bridge that leads to the vertical circulation of the home. The open floor plan and the utilization of a exterior door system that moves out of the sight lines ensure spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean as well as inviting the outside to become one with the interior. Another feature of the vertical circulation allows complete privacy when guests enjoy the upper level as a lock off.
The Uvita, Costa Rica residence won the Silver Honor for “Conceptual Design” in the Dream Home Awards 2010.
