Modern Concrete House Surrounded By A Forest

Modern Concrete House Surrounded By A Forest

Paz Arquitectura has designed the LP2 House, a modern residence located in a forest in the outskirts of Guatemala City in Guatemala.

A large pivoting wood and glass front door welcomes people to the house. Once inside, the wood flooring featured throughout the home contrasts the exposed concrete ceilings.

The house is divided into two floors, the main floor is dedicated to the social areas of the house, while upstairs are the more private areas, like bedrooms and bathrooms. Steps, made from concrete poured in place, lead down to the living room that features a fireplace, whose hearth is integrated into the steps.

The living room has a skylight to add natural light, while large sliding doors open to the outdoors.

Outside, there’s a covered patio with a wood ceiling. The patio is home to an outdoor lounge and dining area.
