Silver Bird House

The spectacular Casa Pájaro de Plata (which translates to "Silver Bird House”) is a gorgeous house nestled amidst the Costa Rican jungle with stunning panoramic views of its lush natural surroundings. The private retreat was designed by Architect John Osborne of OS Arquitectura, and features distinctive, dynamic shapes to resemble a bird in flight. The striking structure has a simple shape and is built from a combination of natural stone with white marble and wood to create a variety of warm spaces that allow the owners to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. The open-plan kitchen and living room open towards the terrace, and the infinity pool offers breathtaking panoramic views and seems to flow over onto the faraway tree tops.
