Four Seasons Resort in Costa Rica
The relationship between a building and its site can be complicated. Not only is functionality an issue, a building should capitalize on its setting. Four Seasons Resort in Costa Rica took its location on Peninsula Papagayo into account in its modern design when it was built seven years ago. A series of buildings nestled in the trees, the variety of natural textures and curving rooflines were intended to mimic the organic world around it. Coupled with its open and airy floor plan, the resort's spaces flow from lobby to lounge to landscape with ease.
