Kasiiya Papagayo
by AW²

Shortlisted for hospitality building of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020, Kasiiya Papagayo is 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.
