This is a sports fishing Lodge in the exhuberan pacific south of Costa Rica. The project is trying to blend contemporary architecture concepts with the tropical architecture language. In order to approach to this idea we decided to design wide open spaces and heights to get the most of the fantastic front ocean view, but at the same time the idea was to get a very warm and cozy feeling for the tourists.
The selection of materials like natural stone, bamboo ceiling, natural clay tile for roof and some wood details blends perfectly with the sorrounding environment and is a perfect match for concrete in order to approach our goals. Finally the water feature is conceived as a recycled resource, which first is treated and then taken as an element for this design before its final use for gardening.
