A Place for Lovers of the Sea and Surfing
By Magaly • Feb 12, 2018
This project, designed as a beach house, was undertaken by architectural firm NiHu Arquitectos, on the beach of Guiones, Guanacaste, Costa Rica, an excellent destination of white sands for those who like to surf. It has an area of 416 square meters and was built in 2016.
It is a place that tries to combine the restrictions of a space built with the freedom of enjoying the variety of open-air activities available. The surrounding geography is very flat and distant, which allows the exterior landscapes and views to be framed and taken in the interior spaces as works of art.
The exterior and the interior combine perfectly. As a result of the location of the house, it is divided into two blocks that compensate each other. This compensation also helps to separate private spaces from the more social areas of the project.
This structure is not only well-adapted to its location, but also takes into account the user, for which it creates a third space between the blocks oriented to a navigator’s related activities.
The result is a patio that runs through the house, allowing spaces that are easily accessible to the guests. These trips will provide them with unique experiences that they won’t soon forget.
