The Toledo House is set to withstand the intense heat that hits Guatemala. The upper level of the abode is fitted with a fabric curtain that encircles the entire floor. Not only does this protect individuals from the heat, but it also provides some much-needed privacy from prying eyes.

The house was built by Assadi and Pulido, a Chilean firm that did an excellent job on this design. Because the abode was situated on a hilltop, the firm wanted to make the most of the amazing views of the valley below, so fitted plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the place. A pool is also located in the backyard, providing some relief from the heat of Guatemala. A large deck area accommodates plenty of people who want to kick back and relax.
