Overview
Nestled along the breathtaking shores of Costa Rica, this project emerges as a beachfront sanctuary that marries the comfort of modern living with the untouched beauty of its coastal surroundings. Our international clients comissioned us with transforming a pristine estate into a collection of residences designed for communal living and private retreats, giving birth to Pasha – an innovative architecture and communal harmony.

Concept
Pasha is conceptualized as an architectural embrace between the lush natural environment and the azure of the ocean. A constellation of smaller homes encircles a grand villa, each structure designed to vanish into the landscape while offering unobstructed views and direct engagement with the sea’s elemental power. The choice of natural materials and expansive outdoor living areas ensures every moment is infused with the ocean’s rhythm.

Design
Studio Saxe’s vision materialized through a blend of enduring materials and locally sourced sustainable teak wood, crafting expansive terraces crowned with sugarcane ceilings. This design ethos fosters a profound connection with nature, inviting the outdoors in. Pavilion-like structures create secluded retreats that convene in communal celebration within the main villa’s generous embrace.

Sustainability
By elevating the structures we are able to protect it from the coastal elements and minimize environmental impact, allowing the land to breathe and flourish. The design incorporates extended rooflines and strategic vegetation to shield interiors from the tropical sun while facilitating natural cooling, integrating aesthetic grace with ecological sensitivity.

Construction
A distinct architectural language blends robust concrete with the organic warmth of wood, enabling a modular approach that celebrates precision and craftsmanship. This innovative strategy allowed for the replication of design elements across the estate, showcasing a high level of detail.

Client’s Vision
“Our journey with Pasha began as a quest to create a sanctuary not just for our family but to share this slice of paradise with the world,” shares the client. “From securing the land to navigating the complexities of construction in a remote paradise, our vision was to create an enclave that respects and celebrates its natural setting while offering an unparalleled living experience.”

“Pasha stands as a beacon of sustainable luxury, sprawled across a vast expanse of Costa Rican coastline. Our commitment to the environment and the community is woven into every aspect of Pasha, from the use of natural materials to our support for local craftsmanship and education. As stewards of this magnificent land, our hope is that Pasha not only serves as a luxurious retreat but as a catalyst for positive change, nurturing the Pura Vida spirit and inspiring a legacy of conservation and community empowerment.” – The client
