Modern Three-Level Home in Guatemala Welcoming Nature Indoors
Casa Luz is an interesting approach to a modern home, envisioned by studio Paz Arquitectura and located in Guatemala city, Guatemala. Structured on three levels, this 1&,300 square foot home displays a mix of tempered glass, wood and exposed concrete, resulting in an eye-catching aesthetic effect: “With intent to emphasize the structural elements, and to seek to highlight the local construction methods and materials, design work was done using fine timber formwork in order to leave a permanent imprint on the exposed concrete. The large windows explore the opportunities to open the space as much as possible, and using floor to ceiling windows allows the rooms to become a balcony. Existing vegetation is preserved so that when you open the windows you could have a visual relationship with the existing trees.” Enjoy the virtual tour!
