Embedded in the lush landscape of the Costa Rica hillside, this new resort proposal establishes a clear and timeless architectural approach, synonymous with the spirit and rich character of the Papagayo region. As if emerging from the terrain, the new development merges silently with the existing context and natural surroundings, seamlessly integrating with the tropical environment.

 

The result of this dialogue between the natural and man made creates a universal narrative that symbolizes a modern regional approach with the ambitions of an expanding peninsula. The new resort and amenities seek to exploit and enhance the inherent beauty of the hillside, allowing visitors to become momentarily secluded and focused on peace and tranquility.

 

Formally arranged in a linear gesture, the bold clarity of the resorts composition allows for operational and constructed efficiency. With an emphasis on strengthening the visitor’s views to the coast line, the majority of resort program is oriented to capture scenic vistas while protecting sightlines for both existing and proposed components. Gardens and pools become the counterbalance found within the interstitial spaces, acting as an interwoven blue and green network cascading over the topography, a direct homage to the regions vitality.

 

Local materials, vernacular construction methods and integrated sustainable technology allow the proposal to establish a balance between primitive simplicity and advanced exploration. The resulting experience is indelible and enduring, intentionally reduced to a meaningful dialogue, one of luxury, pleasure and spiritual rejuvenation.

 

 

We strive to create unique high end design submissions which create a truly unique and authentic relationship with the surrounding context.  This proposal is currently in progress.
