Nosara is a small, secluded village, perfectly located on the shores of the Pacific Ocean and hosting a vibrant, health-oriented international community practicing surf, yoga and all kinds of outdoor activities.
The ‘Pacific Breeze’ home is built on a tropical jungle hillside, overlooking legendary Playa Guiones, known as one of the best all-family, warm water surf beaches on the planet.
Its minimalistic design features a breeze way, facing the ocean and made of wood slats that allow the ocean breezes to flow through and cool the whole home. This natural cooling system, together with the rooftop solar panels, keep the electricity bill down to 20$ per month.
The owners live in the Pacific Breeze house permanently, with their two children who attend the international Montessori school Del Mar Academy in Nosara. Built on one and a half acres of land, Pacific Breeze features 6’000 square feet of living space, including a large entrance hall with spectacular stairs descending to the common areas, open kitchen with dining area, a large living room, a garage with storage and laundry areas, a media room, a work-out room and platform, a home office and three ocean view bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.
Large outside terraces are integrated with the inside space thanks to sliding windows which, once opened, disappear completely in the walls and lead to the spectacular infinity pool with wet and dry bar and to a guest apartment discretely built on the downwards slope.
The house was designed by Salagnac Arquitectos. They have beautifully combined form and function, and a careful selection of building materials to produce this stunning masterpiece.
