Vista Mar 17

SARCO ARCHITECTS COSTA RICA as Architects

This residence has a privileged location in the Peninsula Papagayo along the 17th hole Tee Four Seasons Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. The land has a very irregular shape, as two intersecting triangles, and a medium to steep topography. The irregular shape with sharp angles combined with proper regulation of development withdrawals made the resulting space was very uncomfortable.


Therefore we designed the residence as three major structural hinged together by means of connecting corridors, so that it was possible to answer the landform and the changing topography. Just like our other designs, the residence was designed elevated natural ground, so that its construction was possible without removing a single cubic meter of ground material. With this methodology we achieve environmentally responsible design, and maximize the view that in doing so became spectacular distance.


Once the desired height is achieved the visual of this site are the richest we have experienced. It has a mixture of short golf course views, then a forest view middle distance, combined with a view of the bay and the Hotel Four Seasons, and the peninsula to the “Golfo de Papagayo” and to the right a spectacular open view Sea.


We use natural materials such as wood and stone veneer, combined with the extensive glass surfaces and solid plastered surfaces in earthy colors.


We conducted several special design elements, such as stone columns that fall on the water in the pool, and metal umbrellas for sun protection in the main hall, which play an important role in the architecture of the house. The latter in particular, play a big role, as they allowed us to design the social space with spectacular windows but ensuring an effective sunscreen to make comfortable space.
