Espinoza Yoga House by WMR Arquitectos

Perched on the side of a steep grassy ridge on the mountainside of Matanzas beach, the Yoga House is a single-level rustic weekend retreat for meditation and yoga, overlooking the stunning bay views of the Pacific Ocean.

The structure consists of a combination of exposed Oregon pine wood and steel beams, the east-facing backyard captures the morning sun and is a refuge from the afternoon, off-shore breezes.

The main living space located next to the back yard is on a level below the rest of the house, a cozy and intimate yoga room connects the living with both bedrooms.

Inspiration from architects:

The primary design intention was to integrate the building within the powerful landscape slop and to derive its poetics from the qualities of its surroundings.
