San Jose | Costa Rica | 2009
Mixed-use complex and park
Mixed use project containing class A office space, 5-star hotel, casino, retail and dining uses. The project has been designed as a dense urban node comprised of a series of dynamic buildings organized around an exterior garden. The language of the buildings and the manner in which they address the central garden have been developed as abstractions of volcano craters, which are one of the essential elements of Costa Rica’s geography, culture and economy. The significance of the garden also emphasizes the key role that climate and the outdoors plays in the life of Costa Ricans.
