This beautiful beachfront property in Costa Rica features not just one but two amazing houses. They were designed and built in 2018 by studio LSD Architects and they’re surrounded by trees and lush vegetation. One of the houses called Casa Sare has a V-shaped floor plan and sits on the flattest section of the site while the other (Casa Caracali) occupies and higher ground which allows it to offer the best views towards the Pacific Ocean and the nearby beach, Playa Hermosa.
The two houses have different floor plans and different orientations in addition to contrasting designs
Casa Sare is a V-shaped structure which frames the swimming poolCasa Caracali has a more linear floor plan and all its rooms have sliding doors
A backyard swimming pool fits in the area between the two houses, filling a void and making the most of the unusual floor plans and overall distribution of the structures. Around 65 % of the interior areas have green roofs overhead and that’s one of the aspects which allow this project to enjoy a close relationship with their surroundings and with nature in general. On top of that, the houses were built to withstand the tropical weather and to be low-maintenance. They blend in with their surroundings and they welcome the outdoors inside through large windows and sliding glass doors.
Large windows and glass doors open up the rooms towards the courtyard and the views
The swimming pool is framed by a wooden terrace that acts as a buffer between it and the housesThe interior design as a whole is rather simple which allows the focus to remain on the magnificent ocean viewsThe social areas are places towards the back of the houses, where they enjoy a close connection with the outdoorsThe materials and finishes used are meant to reduce the visual impact of the houses and to allow them to blend inBoth houses enjoy lots of natural light, cross ventilation and a good distribution of interior spacesCasa Caracali is entirely covered with green roofs, yet another element which allows it to blend into the landscape
