paz arquitectura - casa corallo

There's no denying the beauty of Casa Corallo, designed by Guatemalan architecture firm, Paz Arquitectura. But more than just a simply stunning residence, Casa Corallo is unique in the ways in which it's managed incorporate the existing wooded and mountainous topography of the landscape into its design.

Because, rather fight the landscape, Casa Corallo embraces it to such an extent that it was actually designed around the existing trees on the property, some of which now grow directly through the house itself. Additionally, the incorporation of large glass windows and use of different types and textures of wood throughout truly give the sense that this home is a part of the hillside, making for an incredibly beautiful home.
