The newly completed “INOUT House” of San Jose, Costa Rica is an architectural feat with its achievement in blending modern and natural components into its uninterrupted inside-to-outside form, hence its name. Designed by architect Joan Puigcorbé, the home covers a 651-sqm-large lot and is constructed with multiple layers of fine Melina wood that are framed by horizontal planes. The interior was furnished by MKBstudio and is arranged so that bedrooms are lined against the peripheries while the kitchen, dining room, living room, swimming pool and porch occupy the main areas. The kitchen area is dressed in a sleek Absolute Black granite stone that extends into a dining table, while the large swimming pool, the home’s crowning piece, flows along the corridors inside and into the outdoors, where the house seamlessly integrates into the surrounding Costa Rican vegetation. More negative space is filled with views of water, blue skies and lush greenery, all of which are surrounded by endless glass walls. The execution of the INOUT House is impeccable, as the home flawlessly blends its surroundings into a dynamic interaction of space, form, earth, water, light and shadow.
