Victor Canas’ Costa Rican Getaway House

Listen to the waves break below as you sit on your pool deck from this amazing, 4,500 square foot house. "I've rarely worked with a site as dramatic as this," said Victor Cañas of the site of this stunning house, set inside a cliff overlooking the Costa Rican waters of the Guanacaste province. "The location demanded a structure that embraces it." So after being appointed by a young couple to design this vacation house for them and their small son, Canas knew he had to respect and embrace the nature all around him. "The house is basically an excuse to enjoy the beautiful surroundings," he continues. "Because of the climate, you live outside as much as you do in, so I eliminated virtually any borders between those two worlds."
