Charred Timber House frames views of the Pacific Ocean in Costa Rica Studio Saxe was commissioned to design a family home perched on the hilltops of the town of Nosara Costa Rica, that would blend and hide within its natural surroundings whilst opening to the dramatic ocean and mountain views.

A tall vertical volume of circulation interrupts the rooflines and joins all parts of the dwelling. Dark and matte materials were taken as inspiration from the surrounding natural landscape to create a harmonious dialogue between the dwelling and the lush mountain it now belongs to.Save this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerDesign. Due to the constrained nature of the size of the site, Studio Saxe decided to create a house composed of two floors that in turn are staggered to break the mass of the dwelling. Living public spaces below are linked to private bedrooms above by a dramatic vertical core that provides the entrance of the home and a moment of intense connection to the framed views of the ocean. Softer interior spaces are juxtaposed to harsher textured exterior cladding of charred teak wood and black framed windows. Save this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerSave this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerConstruction. The construction method of this dwelling came directly from understanding the capability of the soil to hold weight and the seismic conditions that exist in Costa Rica. Together with engineers Studio Saxe decided to create a lightweight steel structure that would pre-cut off site and assembled quickly and efficiently on the site. Teak wood is a prevalent material in the area which is sustainably resourced, and thus the studio and the client wanted to explore the possibility of giving longevity to this natural material by exploring the ancient technique of charring it and finishing with special natural oils. This blend of ancient and new technologies creates an architecture that is both topical and timeless.Save this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerSustainability. Studio Saxe begins every design process with a careful analysis of the phenomenological site conditions and then explores ways of integrating client dreams and comforts within the natural habitat. Bioclimatic Design creates the ideal technical design process to scientifically understand wind patterns, sun exposure, temperature, and many other aspects to then shape the design intelligently to adapt to these conditions without the use of active energy measures.  The Tres Amores House uses the power of the sun to heat water, minimize energy consumption, as well as recycles water through filters, and utilizes state of the art treatment plant systems. This design is a clear reflection of an approach to design that combines high tech preemptive design with low tech construction methods.Save this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerProject gallerySee allShow lessCarlos García Vázquez: “The Modern Urbanism Has Rediscovered Traditional Cities”InterviewsCabins and Chalets: Secluded Homes in the Czech CountrysideArticles Share Photographs Costa Rica 2020 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Andres Garcia Lachner+ 21Curated by Paula Pintos Share CopyHouses•Nosara, Costa Rica ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  Tres Amores House / Studio SaxeSave this projectSaveTres Amores House / Studio Saxe Tres Amores House / Studio Saxe Architects: Studio Saxe Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Houses Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officeStudio SaxeOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNosaraOn FacebookCosta RicaPublished on August 07, 2020Cite: “Tres Amores House / Studio Saxe” 07 Aug 2020.
