Costa Rica literally meaning, “Rich Coast”, is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Caribbean Sea to the east, and Ecuador to the south of Cocos Island. It has a population of around 4.5 million, of whom nearly a quarter live in the metropolitan area of the capital and largest city, San José. Art Director Angelina Alekseeva latest project is located in the beautiful country of Costa Rica.
The villa is located on the Pacific coast in southwest Costa Rica, on area of 3000 square feet. The villa’s architect is Tim Vordtriede, it was our joint work and effort so now we are completely satisfied with the result. Our client lives in Los Angeles and gave us full freedom of actions.
The interior design of the villa built on natural materials such as wood, stone and glass. All the rooms of the house are in moderate and natural colors and materials. On the one hand the combination of wood and gray stone creates a cozy atmosphere, on the other makes it balanced and peaceful, giving the opportunity to relax and enjoy nature. The first floor acts as a public zone of the house, kitchen-dining-living room and guest bathroom.
The second as private part – two master bedrooms with spacious bathrooms, as well as two smaller guest bedrooms and one bathroom. My work is my hobby. I always try to travel a lot, twice a year visit design fairs in Moscow and Milan, gaining more experience. Every two or three months I go somewhere just for getting inspiration and catching some fresh air with ideas. Mostly I like traveling in Europe.
I am a fan of modern style. The style in which I work can be described as eco minimalism of materials – wood, stone, concrete, glass. I like to use them in contrast with soft sofas, warm shades. I love accessories. I think that the stylish simplicity – is the pinnacle of complexity. I really loved the early twentieth century architects, which stood at the origins of modern architecture.
