The Atrium House, at a little over 1200 meter in elevation, creates the perfect climate condition with warm breezy days and cool evening.
The sophisticated atrium design creates a home of rare elegant tranquility that is ideal for a family lifestyle and a stunning showpiece for large gatherings and parties.
The one-level main house is perched on the mountain side and is a spacious 5-bedroom that provides amazing views from every room. The design provides an abundance of space, light and privacy, as well unparalleled comfort.
The atrium itself is a lavish 20-foot by 40-foot space of rich travertine marble, centered on a dramatic courtyard fountain sculpted from pure black granite. The house is named after this magnificent feature that delivers a first impression second to none.
A custom engineered steel support structure and high tech self-cleaning and solar-E glass cover the atrium. The design of this incredible space allows it to be totally open to the rest of the house or closed off by a frameless European sliding glass wall system that separates the central area of the atrium from the private and social areas.
The open floor plan takes full advantage of natural light making the experience of moving through the house truly special. Furniture was custom designed, with extensive use of colorful fabrics. Focal pieces are made from the beautiful Costa Rican local hardwoods.
