Zona 14 House

Zona 14 House - Concept Store - Completed 2013 - Zone 14, Guatemala City

The exterior for this concept store takes inspiration from Spanish Colonial architectural hertiage of the area, specifcally the sculptural openings and the thick stucco walls. Molded fiberglass panels give the appearance that the entire project is shrink-wrapped, creating an eye-catching exterior.

Zona 14 House is a rennovation of a singular story concrete-block building. Reducing the scale of the openings in the facade adds to both the residential appreance and reduces heat gain on the interior. This concept store contains retail areas for clothing, home furnishings by local artists, a gallery cafe, toilets and service spaces.
