The idea behind the extension was to enlarge the living space and alter the existing floor plan of the house and to move the dining area and family room into the new structure. Concrete and glass were the materials used to shape this seemingly minimal and polished new addition with the sliding glass doors and large floor-to-ceiling windows inviting the landscape indoors.
Glazed corner windows influence both the visual appeal of the exterior and the functionality indoors by allowing the homeowners to easily utilize even the tiniest of corner nooks while dark cedar ushers in textural contrast.
It is cast-in-place concrete and artisanal bricks that give the interior a modern industrial appeal even as they usher in ample textural beauty. With a wood screen at the front that hides the parking and entrance there is plenty of contrast at every turn.
Architecture that acts as a bridge between the landscape and those who inhabit it is often the one that produces the best result. Nestled on a lush green lot in Puntarenas Province Costa Rica is a gorgeous contemporary residence that offers panoramic views of both the ocean in the distance and the dense forest scenery that surrounds it.
The steel and wooden structure of the house itself seems to float above the ground in an effortless fashion and adds to the relaxing atmosphere at the Ocean Eye. A large pool and serene garden complete life at this stunning Costa Rican home where nature comfort and ocean-side goodness come together with panache.
