Kasiiya Papagayo
by AW²

Kenny Viese

French studio AW² has built a boutique hotel in Costa Rica, which has been carefully integrated into the hillside to not disturb the surrounding landscape.

From the very beginning, the conservation of the tropical forest has been paramount. The space has been built on timber platforms from natural materials.

Thee intention throughout the project was not just to have minimal impact on the environment, but zero.

This project has been longlisted in the hospitality building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
