Pininfarina has unveiled its designs for the first luxury high-rise in Guatemala City and Central America. Torre Carrais slated to become one the tallest buildings in the city once completed in 2024.
Situated within culturally robust Guatemala City, the 38-unit tower will feature native Italian Carrara stone material to exude warm, inviting tones. Influenced by the historical Italian art and architecture of Pininfarina's roots, the sculpted Carrara marble reflects the firm's ethos of 'elegance, purity and innovation.' The curved facade, featuring large terraces at each level, offers units abundant natural lighting and marks a definitive iconic factor of the design, seen from around the city.
"We are thrilled for the first residential development in Guatemala," commented Paolo Trevisan, Vice President of Design at Pininfarina of America, which oversees the firm's work in Latin America from its studio in Miami. "Offering an exceptional experience in elegance and fine finishes, residents will feel the dynamic design within their own home."
The building will include a gym, electric scooter and bike station, parking garage, concierge area, children's playroom, pool with attached deck, and a BBQ pit. Seeking to further integrate the foliage of the local environment into the design to activate residents' senses, the team also incorporated native flora throughout both private resident and amenity spaces.
Torre Carra by Pininfarina is slated to break ground in early 2022.
