Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Benjamin Garcia Saxe has designed ‘Casa Flotanta’, a family home located in Puntarenas, Costa Rica. This unique new modern tropical home offers a unique living experience floating above the canopy of the jungle, totally surrounded by nature. The house is created out of modules that are repetitive and linked by flying bridges that hover over the landscape.
