This residence designed by SARCO Architects and located in the Peninsula Papagayo luxury resort in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, was penned by its owner to have an “Earthy Contemporary” architectural style. The home was designed in a lot overlooking the sixteenth hole of the Four Seasons Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. The design was thought to maximize the view to the golf course fairway down below, and to also take advantage of multiple existing trees around the home and give the home an exotic tree house feeling. We used a combination of large glazed surfaces for transparency, exposed steel structure, with wood and natural stone accents, to achieve a modern design with a natural feeling.
This residence designed by SARCO Architects has a privileged location in the Peninsula Papagayo , is next to the 17th hole tee Four Seasons Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. The land has a very irregular shape, as two intersecting triangles, and a medium to steep topography. The irregular shape with sharp angles combined with proper regulation of the development withdrawals made the resulting space was very uncomfortable.
