The Toledo House is Made to Withstand the Heat of Guatemala

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.
