Casa Corallo – A House Built Around the Trees

Located in a forest of trees and mountainous topography near Guatemala City, architecture firm PAZ Arquitectura creates a beautiful urban home that celebrates the unique synthesis of man-made structures and nature. Designing the house was found difficult as the architects wanted to take advantage of the open space naturally provided and not hinder any trees that were already in tact inside the construction zone. Thus, the house is mounted on slopes and features elements of wood, glass and concrete, which forms interesting dialogue between the structure and the local forest.
