A Costa Rican Cliff House With Spectacular Ocean Views

House Cocobolo, created by Cañas Architects, roosts on the brink of 40 metre high cliff. The home’s position brings in a magnificent view of the ocean horizon, and mainland to the southeast. The house is named after its neighbouring trees that thrive in the forest and river canyon. The house is approached alongside the forest of cocobolo trees, where the view of the ocean peeps only fleetingly through the thick vegetation and undulating landscape. Once inside, the house opens up at double height, with huge expanses of glass in the living room that dispel the border between inside and out to the ocean.

Here is a video tour of the house:
