The Ocean Eye House is a truly innovatively designed ocean villa, designed by Costa Rica-based architect Benjamin Garcia Saxe and situated on the Nicoya peninsula, that is designed to make it easier than ever for inhabitants of the home to feel connected to one another even when located in different sections of the dwelling.

The highlight feature of the Ocean Eye House is the fact that it is equipped with wooden walls that double up as screens that can be unfolded out to create natural separation between rooms, or indeed folded in to open up the interior space.

This ocean villa is clearly inspired by the vast ocean that lies before it, in that it is designed to maximize internal space to give the dwelling an airy and open feel.
