Areopagus by Paravant Architects & Planners
The Areopagus Residence located in Atenas, Costa Rica, was designed for a client from Hollywood, California, by Paravant Architects & Planners in 2011.
Description by Paravant Architects & Planners
Developed in close response to the rhythms and materials of a subtropical climate, we sought to embrace the fundamental environmental intentions of the program while creating a contemporary place of strong individual character and quiet complexity. The street facing facade of the home is closed, contrasting the entirely open south facade towards the lap pool with breathtaking views across the valley and surrounding mountains of tropical rain forest.
