Nestled in the heart of the blue zone community of Nosara, Costa Rica, Casa Azúcar by Studio Saxe offers an oasis that blends indoors and outdoors for the perfect getaway.
Designed in 2022, the contemporary tropical house is the perfect combination of respecting the existing trees and a natural creek, providing warmth and comfort within nature. The house is designed like a habitable garden pavilion, carefully choreographed to enter the back of the house towards the creek and the wildlife that spawns from there. The interior design is light and soft, creating a modern beach-like feel, and bioclimatic passive design is used for sustainability.
The Mexico and Sweden-based studio Main Office has recently expanded and revived Villa Pelícanos, an existing residential complex dating from the ‘80s, and nestled in the tropical landscape of Mexico’s West Coast.
Located in Sayulita — a beach town that is a popular destination for health, wellness and surfing retreats, the project is composed of a series of pavilion-like individual dwellings that descend a slope facing the Pacific Ocean.
