Costa Rica Treehouse

Built entirely of teak wood harvested on-site, this stunning retreat is inspired by the jungle of this densely forested site on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Designed by American firm Olson Kundig Architects, the three-storey treehouse is built with local teak wood, slatted walls and columns made of tree trunks. Envisioned as a surfer hut, the Costa Rica Treehouse is nestled within a dense jungle near Playa Hermosa beach where the owners can enjoy their passion of surfing. The ground level merges with the forest floor, and also connects to a concrete swimming pool that rises up from the sloped site, there is also an open-plan kitchen and dining area, along with storage space. The middle level features a bedroom, bathroom and additional storage and is nestled within the trees. The top level houses a living room and bathroom. This level is lifted above the forest canopy, enabling views of the jungle and ocean.

KERAMIKUS CERAMIC KNIVES
