INOUT house in San Jose, Costa Rica by Joan Puigcorbé

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

Article source: Joan Puigcorbé

This house establishes an uninterrupted ¨inside-outside¨ relationship; a sequence of layers between the open and the intermediary. Frontal boundaries are blurred by sheets of glass and vegetation, framed by two horizontal planes, floor and ceiling, where the full and the void are related via a series of matter, water, vegetation and sky. Lateral boundaries establish the ¨full-void¨ relationship via a series of solid materials that close transversal views.

Hidden Flashes in San Jose, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

Saturday, November 1st, 2014

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

A solid, natural, and warm object makes us question what is inside. Soft lines, symmetrical composition, plotted openings, and small rays of light peek inside. The thrill of slipping between pointillism in each sharp element contrasts with the tranquility and passivity of light reflected in its shadow; a double faced complexity.

Cascades of Lights in San Jose, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe

Saturday, November 1st, 2014

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe

Framing and fading the view become guidelines for the imagination; where an escape from the city is built and transported into a fictional world that is dancing with the wind, and light plays absorbed by its threads that catch between their frames a changing landscape.

West Dublin BART Apartments and Crescent Village in San Jose,California by MVE & Partners

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Article source: MVE & Partners

While national property markets still struggle to recover, the slowdown in home-buying is bolstering demand for apartments—and creating more work for Irvine-based MVE & Partners, one of the nation’s premier residential and mixed-use architecture firms.

“Domestic real estate remains iffy, but there are pockets of recovery, including multi-family,” said Carl McLarand, AIA, chairman of MVE & Partners.  “Of course, we have been designing apartments and community developments for nearly 40 years, so this is playing to one of our strengths.”

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

Gabriela Calvo and Marco Peralta dreamed of living in their fantastic property 20 minutes outside of the city of San Jose, Costa Rica; where they could be with their horses and enjoy the natural landscape. They made the very bold choice of exploring with me the possibility of creating a very inexpensive house made out of disregarded shipping containers that allowed them to be dept free and live the life they always dreamed of.
