The program could not be simpler for this residence by Cañas Arquitectos. It’s a place where one can enjoy the view and spend afternoons and part of the evening with friends and family. The view of Costa Rica’s San Jose city with the central volcanic mountain range is spectacular, the Escazú mountains with it’s Pico Blanco or White Peak , so close that you feel that you can touch them with your hands.
With this in mind, Cañas Arquitectos designed a glass house, elevated on top of metallic columns and with a cover that opens towards the view – 3 glass sides and a back wall (with the amenities). The access is through a steel bridge and glass which directs us towards the open view of the city , and soon towards the end, breaking off into an angle to access the room. It’s a unique 52 m2 space which holds living room, dining room, kitchen and a small adjacent bathroom.
