Paz Arquitectura have added modern extensions to a small hut in Guatemala, that was built in 1965.

 

The original hut was built on a large cantilevered platform with a triangular joist steel frame. It had a small social area, kitchen, and a small bedroom.

The owner requested an addition in order to have more formal spaces, and to suit the needs of their current lifestyle better. A large pivoting wood door welcomes visitors.

Hallways, that feature walls of windows and a wood floor, connect the new areas of the house with the original hut.

Two new modules were added to the original hut, which now houses the living room. One module is home to the kitchen and dining room, and the other houses a family room and the main bedroom
