Wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glazing, this light-filled retreat embraces the Guatemalan forest from all angles.
Built in 1965, a modest, gabled hut on the outskirts of Guatemala City has been transformed into an expansive 4,467-square-foot getaway by architect Alejandro Paz of local studio Paz Arquitectura, who walked a fine line between adhering to the original architectural style and injecting new elements that blur the line between indoors and out.
In response to the owner’s desire for a larger bedroom and greater space for entertaining, Alejandro designed two additions on either side of the compact hut. One houses an open-plan living room, dining area, and kitchen, while the other contains the master suite with a sitting area. The original hut has been modified into the guest quarters.
