Located on the outer edge of a forest reserve in San José, Costa Rica, Casa Yos owes its name to the existing tree which acts as a supporting pillar for the wooden deck surrounding it.

Constructed in an elongated shape, the abode offers arresting views of the lush forested environment, from each of its areas. The spaces inside include an ample social area with dining room and living room, a large kitchen, the parents’ bedroom on one end and the children’s bedrooms on the other end. The focal point (and the most frequented space of the house) is the terrace which is accessed through sliding glass, connecting the inhabitants to the magnificent outdoors and the old Yos tree.
