Project details


We intervened in the design of the VGM building during the construction process of the original design. A main requirement for the client was to create the feeling of a house surrounded by a garden for the penthouse office. Indoor gardens are integrated on each level and a central vertical chamber allows for natural light. Landscaped water ponds and lush vegetation crown the top of the building for staff to enjoy the urban greenhouse. Set against the backdrop of the gorgeous Costa Rican sky, visitors are wowed by the shimmering reflections coming from the ground to roof windows.
