A towering three-storey surfer hut has been erected near Playa Hermosa in Costa Rica by Olson Kundig Architects. The American firm focused on facilitating a nurturing and balanced environment by accommodating the needs of its clients who are "surfers and passionate environmentalists." As a result, the home itself embraces the surrounding setting — one that is riddled with volcanoes, rainforests, and a scenic coastline, in a very minimalist and stylish way.
The three-storey surfer hut is created with a facade that blends in and a building silhouette that utilizes available local resources. Olson Kundig Architects specifies that it designed the home to "operate passively" which contributes to the desired aesthetic of the house.
Without a doubt, the surfer hut will provide an ample getaway from the urban environment.
