Natural modern

7 TEAMS OF ARCHITECTS RISE TO THE CHALLENGE

The Pacific coast of Guanacaste is a beautiful but at times extreme environment. At Senderos we embrace this challenge. We celebrate those who wish not only to adventure, but to do it with style.

We call our style Natural Modern. We aim to combine the aesthetic ideals of modern design with a firm commitment to the local, natural landscape. Each home or structure is designed specifically for each parcel of land, no two alike, we never design a home and “place it” on a lot. There is no book of model homes.

This year’s guild of architects are men and women who have chosen to not just master their craft, but go beyond and meet environmental challenges head-on.

These are more than creative minds, they are technical thinkers and innovators. But more than anything else they understand how people use their spaces, how they pass through them, how they come to rest — how they want to live.

We are honored to be working with them. And together, we share a passion for creating the remarkable in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

"No house should ever be on a hill or on anything. It should be of the hill. Belonging to it. Hill and house should live together, each the
happier for the other.”
- Frank Lloyd Wright

"We should attempt to bring nature, houses, and the human being to a higher unity… If you view nature through glass walls... it gains a more profound significance than if viewed from outside. That way more is said about nature - it becomes a part of a larger whole.”
- Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
