When the master developer began planning The Enclaves at Nacascolo Bay, the design brief was to evolve Ronald Zürcher’s highly successful Four Seasons Private Villa for today’s larger and more active multi-generational getaways. Over months of design development, thirty percent more floor area was added. Outdoor living space more than doubled. At the same time, materials with higher recycled content were added and density was reduced. With fewer residences, the separation of buildings increased dramatically. Zürcher’s reimagined built form became a more substantial yet more sustainable Costa Rica getaway with lower holding costs and a reduced carbon footprint.

Nothing is art if it does not come from nature.

Articulating History

In designing The Enclaves at Nacascolo Bay, Zürcher gives something back to a fortunate few — serenity, space, joy. A quality of calmness and freedom transcends line, color, and texture. Recalling the ceremonial metate used by Guanacaste’s ancient Chorotega, the curved roof forms articulate history while gently guiding the eye to the tropical forest canopy overhead. Filled with wildlife, it is a wondrous place that engages a full spectrum of senses with a movement and rhythm all its own.

Land Plan

Drawn by Nature

Architect Ronald Zürcher shows his passion for nature and reverence for the Chorotega people with an organic planning approach that treads lightly on the land. Structures are integrated into their natural environment, minimizing site disturbance and preserving ecosystem services. Each villa is sited for optimal light and cooling breezes following existing contour lines, hill shade, and slope. Southern aspects and large format window walls frame panoramic views of lush fairways, protected wildlands, turquoise waters, and a golden sand beach. A private path connects to Nacascolo Beach House, just two minutes away.
