Costa Rica Cabina
Nosara, Costa Rica
Located in the surf and yoga mecca Norsara, a rapidly densifying "urban village," will be the Costa Rica Cabinas. Each cabina is designed as a "bento box of desire": jungle garden, pool, sun, shade, yoga platform and a place to sleep in the ocean breeze, organized within a compact, spatial grid. The cabina grid is programed like a board game for play. Bamboo and wood privacy screens are lifted and lowered to join or separate the three cabinas to realize different bedroom counts, thereby maximizing the booking success rate for the air bnb browser and the hotelier. Along the way to maximizing profits is a playful experience of surprise and discovery in a constantly shifting spatial puzzle.
