Contemporary Corallo House, Guatemala

Guatemala city-based design studio Paz Arquitectura has designed Corallo House. Completed in 2011, the three-storey property can be found in Santa Rosalia, Guatemala city, Guatemala.

According to the architects: “Corallo House integrates the existing forest into the design layout of the contemporary Guatemala property. It merges nature into the architectural intervention. The design process began with the objective to preserve the existing trees, in order to have the trees interact with the living space.

“The floor plan is free of columns and the changes in level adapt to the existing topography. Both façades are mostly glass in order to connect the interior to the exterior. The main structural component is exposed concrete, which shows off the rustic texture of the wooded framework, allowing a connection between the formal element and the textures of the forest.” Images courtesy of Andres Asturias.
