A journey through the most remarkable examples of Mesoamerican history and culture, the houses displayed in this book portray the great versatility and unique aesthetics of their building, interior design, and landscaping throughout Guatemalan history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Casa guatemalteca?

Absolutely the best!!!  Aug 5, 2005
I had wanted to get this book for years, and now that I have it I can't stop glancing at its pages. The book is so rich in history, the houses chosen are awesome, and Ange Bourda's work is impecable, as always. A book worth having on your collection to make you proud you are Guatemalan.
Makes me home sick!!!!!  Sep 29, 2001
I just move to the usa and because I wanted to have something that reminds me of home with the decoration of my apartment I had to buy it I saw the book in a furniture store in Antigua Guatemala days before I left but I couldt buy it!!
I decided to search and I found it, I am so happy
Courtyards & architecture at a wonderful price  Apr 22, 2001
We bought 2 of these books in Guatemala and paid almost twice this site's price! Bummer but we loved the book. Pictures are awsome and when we got home everyone wanted our books to keep so I was so pleased to find it on this site and at a bargain price.

Not only is it a wonderful collage of home styles and decorating ideas with professional quality photos but the history of the architecture is a very interesting read as well. I'd call this one of the best books we ever purchased. If you are interested in Guatemala and/or Central American architecture, I think you'll love this book.

Pase adelante a la Casa Guatemalteca  Apr 4, 2001
For a Guatemalan like myself, it is a thrill to have a book like this in order to show people some of the best our country has to offer in the way of art, architecture, use of space and color and textiles. I am sorry this site does not make this book available. However, it is found in both English and Spanish in Guatemala. Anybody going down there should pick it up. I picked one up during my last trip as a gift for my mother-in-law, a tenured ASID Interior Designer in San Jose, California (she was very thrilled!). My only 'complaint' is that they did not show more houses outside of the Antigua/Guatemala City circuit, e.g. Quetzaltenango, the great estates in Escuintla, etc. In fact, it is a bit too Antigua focused, which in that case it should have been called "Casa Antigua". However, do not let this detract from acquring this wonderful book.
magnificent  Jan 18, 2000
Great photographs, incredible mansions at antigua, ideal for people interested in decorating with antiques. Beautiful gardens, magnificent to watch how architects mix so artisticaly the ruins at antigua with the new homes without destroying the sense of such an old and historic city.
