House of the Week 142: Corallo House

(c)Paz Architects

The Corallo House in Santa Rosalia, Guatemala city, Guatemala designed by Paz Architects is a three level concrete residence completed in 2011. Located in a dense hillside forest the penetrates the home, merging nature into the daily activities of the users. The glass façades reinforce the connection to the landscape. The main structural element is fair-faced concrete that bears the texture of the formwork, creating a dialogue between the man-made and the natural.

There is something enchanting about a tree-house. Maybe a tree-house brings us back a little bit to our childhood state of mind.

Very nicely done.
