Jungle House in Nosara Costa Rica


Nosara, Costa Rica is a verdant and tropical paradise, full of natural beauty and oceanside views. It also has been known as a growing surf community, and a mecca for yoga.


Architecture firm Studio Saxe has built a daring jungle retreat that is as lofty as it is open to the Costa Rican elements. Created from prefabricated I-beams assembled onsite to minimize the impact on the land.


The home is full of expansive glass views and a huge overhanging roofline. Louvered wall shades made of teak help the house stay cool in the tropical heat.


It’s an admirable design, in an enviable location. Via DesignBoom:
