Casa Antigüeña: The Attic

Casa Antigüeña: The Attic

Finally, we reached the loft in the second floor… oops, I meant the attic. Remember the building codes in La Antigua Guatemala prohibit new construction of two-story houses (wink, wink). They say nothing of really high ceilings in single story homes. 😉

Anyway, you can see how the attic-turned-loft can be used for a guest room or studio. I like the terra cotta ceramic floor tiles set at 45˚ degree angle. I like their rich burned red color which is in harmony with dark mahogany wooden ceiling.

So this room can be called an attic (ático), loft (desván or tapanco) or simply the second floor.
