With views above the canopy, the Floating House by Architect Benjamin Garcia Saxe is a dream holiday retreat in the jungle of Costa Rica. According to the architects, the unconventional building is made up of three pods, connected by bridges and walkways. Moreover, “it is fitted with sustainable teak floors, solar water heating and UV water filtration systems. The infinity swimming pool, which sits below the house, allows you to enjoy the sunset, watch the waves and listen to the chorus of parrots and monkeys which live alongside you in the tree canopy.” To us, this project resembles a luxurious treehouse, where the indoor-outdoor interplay takes center stage.
The layout functionally serves the modern living needs of up to seven guests: “The lounge, framed by floor-to-ceiling glass concertina doors, has low sofas and handmade love chairs for relaxing in and making the most of the jungle and ocean views. An impressive 24m corridor connects the main living space to the two upstairs bedrooms and the huge open-air, bamboo-lined, spa bathroom. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and the second bedroom contains a queen-size bed and a single bed. The third bedroom, downstairs, is more compact with a double bed, en suite toilet and shower.” Each room features lovely shutters that open towards the terrace and the majestic landscape. Enjoy the views!
