A suburban refuge between forest and ocean, the Cosmos House designed by S-AR develops from a hypergeometric plant that dilates its spaces and senses towards the surrounding natural elements.
Casa Cosmos is a spectacular open-air retreat nestled between the sea and jungle, that invites you to enjoy the wonderful climate of Puerto Escondido, Mexico. This minimal piece of architecture impresses with clear lines, concrete grid and a roof top with breathtaking views and a refreshing pool.
The house is composed of a centre or hard core of concrete elements, which protects the living space indoors. An external grid connected to the rough concrete centre extends the activities throughout the house to the outside, generating patios, terraces, perimeter and vertical circulation and a pool, changing the real dimension of the experience of inhabiting the house.
An external spiral staircase therefore offers access to the equipped roof. A contemplative space, the solar pavement offers a single glimpse of the forest and ocean, and opens up to the experience of the night space. A basin of water positioned in the center of the plant, in fact, is designed to reflect the stars at night, allowing a close encounter with the sky.
