Vistas del Angel by LAKP Diseño & Desarrollo
Antigua-based studio LAKP Diseño & Desarrollo has completed the Vistas del Angel project in 2010.
Located in Guatemala City, Vistas del Angel consists of twelve 2,700 square foot residential units that offer loft-like interior spaces, all of them with impressive views of the city and the valley.
Vistas del Angel by LAKP Diseño & Desarrollo:
“A steeply sloped site in the mountainous skirts of Guatemala City’s valley rested undeveloped while having impressive views. Guatemala is a seismic zone 4 area, and this was a factor for the site to remain undeveloped.
Structures with long spans were designed to rest on top of concrete piles poured into the steep slope in order to be able to develop a residential solution that is cantilevered through the air.
All habitats in the project have long glass expanses, all the walls are light gauge steel sandwich panels, and a wooden Prodema rainscreen was applied on top of some panels, along with aluminum composite panels.
Structural steel has been left exposed in order to enrich the interior spaces.
The habitats were designed for a specific market segment (affluent professionals in their thirties), and thus a specific lifestyle product was developed.”
