Casa Corallo, Guatemala

Nestled on a dense forest hillside near Guatemala City, Paz Architectura‘s glorious Corallo House embraces the surrounding woodland, quite literally capturing the spirit of the trees. With preservation of the existing trees in the architects’ minds from the very beginning, trees interact with the living space, designing a structure free of columns with facades made largely from glass to connect the interior to what’s outside. Concrete forms the main structural element, though even that is crafted and shaped with real flair.
