Stepping down a steep hillside and overlooking the ocean, Mint Santa Theresa, designed by Studio Saxe, is a new hotel that blends a European design aesthetic with Costa Rican craftsmanship.
Set in the rainforest of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, two modern homes, designed by Studio Saxe, project out of the landscape and are defined by a series of steel frames that that bring the best modern methods of construction to a tropical location.

Nosara has become a destination for visitors from around the world for health, wellness and surfing and so the owners of Hotel Nalu-Nosara, Nomel and Mariya Libid, wanted a design that reflects the attitude of their guests.
Design: Benjamin Garcia Saxe, architects – Caribbean coast architecture uses simple ideas for using rain water, temperature control through cross ventilation, and large overhangs; an aesthetic based on traditional tropical architecture of the Caribbean.

The clients wanted to create their family home on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica and found an incredible site overlooking the ocean for this vastly sympathetic creation.
Architect: Benjamin Garcia Saxe
The client bought a beautiful plot of land with two breath-taking views: towards the ocean and into the jungle. Architect Benjamin Garcia Saxe decided to rest the house against the back of the steep hill of the site in order to stabilize the soil and protect the property from falling debris.

This building was planned as a retirement residence for a client from Hollywood, California: the design focused on creating a home that is harmoniously integrated into the landscape of the surrounding Costa Rican mountains. This was largely done by allowing for a strong connection between the indoor and outdoor living to take full advantage of the moderate climate and spectacular views the site offers.
