Designed by Costa Rica based Studio Saxe, the Sirena House is designed with the idea of ‘integrating the jungle experience’ into the house. Situated in the town of Santa Teresa, the house looks out into the ocean.
The design process started with decomposing the mass of the building into a series of pavilions with overlapping roofs that create interesting circulation spaces between the volumes. With the various volumes, the architects integrated the home into the lush green of its surroundings.
Different volumes of the house, hosts different programs. The pavilions are divided into bedrooms, living spaces, service areas, and all volumes are weaved together through the connected indoor/outdoor space circulation, allowing the inhabitant to experience the intense natural surrounding, whilst in the comfort of their own home.
