Perched on the hilltops of the town of Nosara in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, Charred Timber House absorbs uplifting views of the Pacific Ocean and of a dense green landscape. Designed by Studio Saxe, the 515 square metre family home features an exterior of charred teak wood and black framed windows. Two extended horizontal roof planes provide protection from the natural elements, whilst also promoting a connection with nature by forming wide and welcoming terraces. The outer environment inspires an interior that is decorated with natural wood and dark, matte materials. Living spaces are open plan and airy, with full focus placed on the special views that are pulled in through floor-to-ceiling walls of glass.
