Designing a House Around a Tree: The Unique Concept of Casa Besos


Casa Besos, located in Nosara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica, is an architectural marvel designed around a central Guanacaste tree, blending modern tropical architecture with nature. The house features strategically placed bedrooms and living spaces that maximize natural views, large windows, and open-plan areas to seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor living. Initially considered for remodeling, the project evolved into a new build to better align with its central theme. Casa Besos highlights sustainability through the use of local materials and passive cooling techniques, setting a new standard for contemporary residential design that harmonizes with the natural environment.
