If the city is located in a valley or on a mountainside, then, over time, the most visited places are the hills, which offer views of the city blocks. Often in such places establish observation platforms, where you can take pictures against the background of evening lights.
Architects from Cañas Arquitectos studio were assigned to develop this idea and design a country cottage with a view of the city of San Jose in Costa Rica.
Country houses can be built not only near water bodies - urban landscapes are no less attractive and worthy of attention
The cottage was built on an inclined hill , near its summit. Despite the modern style, the house organically blends into the surrounding landscape, and the views of the city from it do not leave anyone indifferent to the guests.
Informally, this place is called “house near the ficus” - if during the day the cottage just looks beautiful against a tree, then at night the area lights up and everything is perceived as a solid composition.
Steel and glass look harmoniously against the background of the surrounding cottage greens of shrubs and trees
The house can be reached only by a steel bridge, on which transparent tempered glass handrails are installed
Even at the entrance you can already see how a beautiful view of the city opens from here
In the evening, the backlights turn on, while still faintly visible in the fading sunlight
When the sun hides behind the horizon, all the accents of the landscape stand out clearly the background of the gathering twilight, and the city becomes a continuous play of colors and glare of thousands of lamps

The living room smoothly goes into the dining room, combined with the kitchen, and into the deep A bedroom and a small bathroom
