Local firm Paz Arquitectura built a three-storey hillside house in an area that is adjacent to Guatemala City. The blueprint of the design is interesting, as it combines modern motifs, softened brutalist detailing and an intended optimization of natural light. The mixed-material hillside house is integrated within the naturally slanted landscape with the main floor of the living area situated in the middle.
The Aylvalaan House, named after "the street the [owners] lived during their first year together in Holand," is composed of orthogonal concrete planes and an almost entirely glass-front facade. The hillside house also features industrial-style motifs like "stainless steel, ample glazing, metal window ribbons and exposed beams," as Dezeen describes.
