Architecture Wednesday: Joya Villa

This new home, in the Puntarenas Canton area of Costa Rica, is 3229 square feet of Pacific Ocean vistas and jungle surroundings… and sleek, modern, open and breezy on the inside.

To be fair, the steep slope of the lot, makes the view of the Pacific visible only from the upper-middle part of the grounds, but the owners accepted that challenge. Normally, homes built on these sites would sit atop large retaining walls, but this home was literally elevated, allowing the slope, land, vegetation, water and animals to flow underneath. In addition, the home is crafted of steel beams, that create openings toward the views on every level and make it seem almost lightweight. Add to that the open floorplan, rooms flowing from one to the other, inside to put, that make the home feeling truly light and airy.

And a perfect place to relax and unwind, or just live.

These are all starting to run together to me. The different types gather together in groups in my head. I like this one.

Having been to Costa Rica now this summer...I could mostly definitely dig this place. A bit too modern but for some reason, I don't mind it in this home. Love the exterior living areas too.

The views! And love all the indoor plants.
Nice that they elevated it for the land and

Everything is awesome: the interior layout, the plants, the clean lines.... and well planned, too!

View is the only thing that works for me in this one... and the bedroom floor.
