Costa Rica Treehouse is inspired by the jungle of this densely forested site on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Built entirely of teak wood harvested on-site, the retreat engages with the jungle at each of its three levels: at the forest floor, the middle floor is nestled within the trees, and the top level rises above the tree canopy with views of the surf at nearby Playa Hermosa beach.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxSave this picture!Save this picture!© Nic LehouxThe clients are surfers as well as avid environmentalists, and this project reflects their deep commitment to sustainable land management in Costa Rica. Designed as an open-air surfer hut, the project engages the Costa Rican landscape in various ways, from the vegetation accessible just off the main floor, to the larger weather and surf patterns one can experience on the top level.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxSave this picture!Save this picture!© Nic LehouxDesigned to operate passively, the home is intended to breathe and remain open to the elements in this temperate semi-tropic environment. The top and bottom floors are completely open to the elements with a double-screen operable wood shutter system, allowing daylight and natural ventilation, but also privacy and security when the owners are away. Shading, a 3.5-kW photovoltaic array, and a rainwater collection system make the house’s compact footprint even lighter on the land.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxProject gallerySee allShow less10 Ideas for Presenting Your Project With Concrete ModelsMiscGehry Designs “Floating Icebergs” for Warner Bros. in Los AngelesArchitecture News Share Year:  Architects: Olson Kundig Area Area of this architecture project Costa Rica Treehouse / Olson Kundiglast_img read more
