Casa Corallo is a beautiful example of a harmonious symbiosis between a man-made shelter and its pristine surrounding nature. Instead of cutting the existing trees on the plot, the architects opted for integrating them into the layout of the house.

The 747.5 m2 multi-level abode is placed on a dense hillside forest in the Santa Rosalía area of Guatemala City. While some parts of the exterior are clad in natural materials like stone and wood paneling, the home’s main structural components are concrete and glass which are set in right angles and straight lines, forming a striking contrast with the warm lines and hues of the piercing tree trunks.
