Salagnac Arquitectos Design Studio by Salagnac Arquitectos.
Andres Garcia Lachner

Salagnac Arquitectos has created Salagnac Arquitectos Design Studio in Costa Rica to encompass energy-efficient systems and healthy working culture.

The project for the new Salagnac Arquitectos facilities is is located in Nosara, known for its rich natural setting which has long inspired the work of the practice.

Surrounded by dense vegetation and just a few meters from the river, the structure uses bioclimatic strategies and energy-efficient systems while offering a healthier, and more in touch with nature, way of developing working spaces and overall lifestyle.

Set on steel stilts to allow for rising river water, the building's natural material-clad form has an immediate connection with its environment and holds within a series of spaces where warm materials and natural light create a pleasant and healthy workspace that, in turn, activates the senses and encourages creativity.

This project has been longlisted in the business building category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
