Wedged between the jungle and the sea, the Ocean Eye House adopts a modular design to take advantage of the Costa Rican landscape. The structure is comprised of a series of terraces. Fitted with folding wood doors, rooms can be closed off for privacy or opened up to the views of both the Pacific Oceans and the tropical forest. These openings were intentionally placed to increase airflow for a natural cooling system. The upper level creates a series of covered patios on the ground floor. Comprised of the main living spaces, this level extends directly out to a massive swimming pool overlooking the below.
