casa maya

Oakland, Calif.-based Ace Architects drew on the imagery of Mayan ruins for the building forms, colors, and decorative motifs of the house it designed for its framing subcontractor and his family outside Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

A pyramidlike structure (top) at the rear of the building contains a bedroom and an upstairs study. It also provides access to a rooftop deck. The home’s courtyard scheme satisfies the initial vision of both client and architect.
