This 2.8-acre charming resort development is located on an oceanfront site on the Pacific side of Costa Rica. The project was a competition in which JZMK Partners sought to create a destination resort which is sensitive to the environment. The design team took special care and creativity to design an upscale small eco resort, utilizing methods and materials which have the least amount of impact on our natural resources.
The overall resort design was intended to feel as if it was an extension of the natural surroundings. Playa Avellana consists of five three-bedroom bungalows, a swimming pool, beach bar, restaurant, and "tree house style" viewing area, all of which were integrated into natural lush tropical landscape.
