Luxury Casa Luz, Guatemala
Guatemala city-based design studio Paz Arquitectura has designed Casa Luz. Completed in 2010, the three-storey property can be found in Guatemala city, Guatemala.
According to the architects: ” Fine timber framework was used to emphasise the structural elements of the contemporary Guatemala property, in order to leave a permanent imprint on the exposed concrete.
“The big windows explore the opportunities to open the space as much as possible, and using floor-to-ceiling windows allows the rooms to become to balconies – great to enjoy the city views.
“White was used for horizontal and vertical planes in order to cause the spread of natural light. Materials such as tempered glass, wood and exposed concrete used in its size, and natural shades create an architecture that is restrained and straightforward.” Images courtesy of Andres Asturias.
