This project, a collaboration with Barnes Coy Architects, from New York, USA has been a pleasure to work on, and needless to say, Sarco Architects Costa Rica is extremely proud of the stunning results that you can see in these photographs.

 The Cielo Mar residence, is stunning example of modern architecture, and has some very distinct design features, such as the cantilevering steel and wood deck bridge that serves as lookout place, provides valuable shade for outdoor dining, and a spectacular entry feature for the home.  Also, its two-slope curving and complex surface roof that spans the entire width of the home, which was a tremendous challenge and exercise in construction precision.

 The home is perched at the top of a plateau and was designed in three levels, entering in the uppermost level and going down onto the main level that houses the living areas, recreation room and master bedroom, all arranged along a semicircle around an expansive Ipe wood deck and facing the 26 meter long swimming pool, clad in Indonesian black lava stone , used to create a color of water equal to the ocean.  The lower level houses the guest bedrooms, along with a gym and media room.

 Sarco Architects Costa Rica also had the opportunity to work with PATDO Light Studio in the lighting design and specification of all the lighting fixtures of this, one of the first fully-LED equipped Luxury Homes in Costa Rica, one important element used in this home to reduce demand and make the home more energy efficient.
