Enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktails while howler monkeys play in the background and macaws perch on your property. This is what a vacation home should be.
Project Nomad #1 is an architecturally designed home. Designed to capture as much breeze and create as much shade as possible. With huge roof overhangs and covered terraces that take the inside out and the outside in, the home is elevated to allow airflow under and around the entire structure. One corner is even 15 feet in the air, giving a great feeling of exposure to the treetops. And yet, you can walk from your car, through the house and to the pool without taking a single step up or down. It’s all on the same elevation. No stairs, which is unheard of in this region. Remember this is a rainforest, so airflow is essential to a cool, dry and healthy home. Not to mention the aesthetic appeal.
The home is a long thin rectangle set up with two master bedrooms with walk-ins, two and a half baths, and a huge open great room. This allows for a constant cross breeze moving through the house. (Interior walls are breeze killers and create heat.) The 1650 square feet of living and 910 square feet of terrace with infinity-edge pool give guests a number of unique places to relax and be alone, each location giving a different feel. The house will live and feel much larger than it is.
The European style kitchen, dining and double height living area open up onto pool deck and terrace with superior views. The villa’s interiors combine a contemporary style with expert touches of poured concrete, wood slabs, and genuine craftsmanship, creating a stylish balance in tribute to Costa Rica's tropical spa-like environment.
