Mason Residence, Costa Rica

The majestic glass home situated on the top of a luxurious mountain in Costa Rica simultaneously has a sprawling view of the rainforest on one side and the ocean on another. The contrast between an array of dark and bright green among the bright blue of the pool along with the brilliant colors of the seascape is breathtaking.

The Mason’s Residence is composed of 360 degrees of windows allowing the flood of natural light and outside views to be the backdrop and focal point of everyday life. The few interior walls, building finishes, and cabinets are composed of natural materials native to Costa Rica. The interior paint colors are muted to allow for the natural surroundings to provide a sense of peace, tranquility, and silence. The house serves as a retreat to be removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
