This hidden retreat in Amacueca, México  is a daylit getaway surrounded by lush walnut groves and forests. CoA arquitectura and Departamento de Arquitectura designed Casa Amacueca using primarily stone and timber , to create a serene escape that fits perfectly into its natural setting. The layout of the house radiates from the central courtyard which allows more natural light to penetrate the interior. Slender timber columns frame a beautiful walkway that offers a visual connection between the living spaces and nature.

Comments Off on Casa Pjaro de Plata offers stunning views of the Costa Rican jungle

This gorgeous house nestled amidst the Costa Rican jungle offers panoramic views of its lush natural surroundings. Architect John Osborne of OS Arquitectura designed Casa Pájaro de Plata (which translates to ‘Silver Bird House’) to resemble a bird in flight. The house has a simple shape and it sits on a promontory surrounded by a lush jungle. The architects combined natural stone with white marble and wood to create a variety of warm spaces that allow the owners to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. These beautiful photos by Fernando Alda capture serenity of the location and the house. Related: Tropical solar-powered home boasts spectacular views of the ocean and jungle The white marble terrace features an infinity pool that seems to flow into the surrounding tree tops. Open-plan spaces dominate the interior, with wooden elements appearing throughout the house – including in the bathrooms and a pathway that leads through the woods to a viewing platform . + OS Arquitectura Photos by Fernando Alda

The architects completely restored the three-story structure, including an attic, two exterior patios and a large terrace on the middle floor, transforming it into a comfortable single-family home. They brought new life to the beautiful detailing and rustic quality of the structure, but have also reorganized and adapted the spaces to better suit the needs of a modern family. Related: Recipients for the Aga Khan Award for Architecture Named for 2013 The entry area provides access to both the upper and lower floors, the latter of which houses the service areas and parking. The main living spaces, together with the dining room and kitchen, are located on the first floor and have direct access to the central terrace. The top floor accommodates three bedrooms, while the attic is meant to be used as an open-plan play area. + Fragmentos de Arquitectura Photos by Francisco Nogueira
