The hotel’s main idea was to create a new pickleball club located in Costa Rica. The project’s concept was creating spaces that combine an appreciation of natural beauty with a rich array of possibilities for social and cultural interaction. The proposal integrates raw and natural materials appropriate to the site creating an unique outdoor experience to its users. The heart of the pickle club project is the communal lounge and the restaurant which has an infinity pool and sunset bar. Additionally the club offers beachfront family villages, amenities and facilities located stepping down a steep hillside and overlooking the ocean that harmonizes with tropical landscapes.
The spacious guest villages can be opened up completely to a personal terrace with an ocean view to the front and are surrounded by gardens with tropical plants in the rear. They count with an incorporation of an open kitchen setup which provides a modern and unique ambiance to traditional architectural elements. The floor-to-ceiling doors have direct openings to the exterior and connect the interior areas of the village with the rest of the environment. This project represents the first phase of of a project that will have more little villages and new amenities in the future.
