From the architect. Located on a dense hillside forest in the Santa Rosalía area of Guatemala City, Corallo House integrates the existing forest into the layout of the house. It merges nature into the architectural intervention. The design process began with the aim to preserve the existing trees, in order to have the trees interact with the living space.

The floor plan is free of columns and the changes in level adapt to the existing topography. Both façades are mostly glass in order to connect the interior to the exterior. The main structural component is exposed concrete, which shows the rustic texture of the wood formwork, allowing a dialogue between the formal element and the textures of the forest.

The brutal expression of the form and structure is brilliant, and is completely juxtaposed by the warmth and light on the interior.

Terrific.

This article on the topic of SEO is actually good one, and the back links are genuinely very useful to market your web page, its also called Search engine optimisation.

most excellent. I love how the trees travel through the building and the interplay of the wood floors and stairs with the concrete form. Reminds me of a Ray Kappe house.
