Guatemala, Guatemala, the Swedish Ambassador's residence
The Swedish Ambassador's residence in Guatemala is an attractive, functional and impressive villa in the suburb of La Canada, where many other countries have their residences.
1000 m2 in La Canada
Thirty-six years of civil war finally came to an end in Guatemala in 1996. The residence that the Swedish Foreign Ministry had been renting for the Ambassador for over ten years was offered for sale to the Swedish State in 1997. The building is an attractive, functional and impressive villa in the suburb of La Canada, where many other countries have their residences. The National Property Board Sweden (SFV) purchased the property, which covers around 1000 m2, in October 1997.
Adapted to the climate
The residence is a white rendered villa over two floors. It has reception rooms on the ground floor, and leading off the large drawing room and hall is a covered terrace that has proven very popular in this pleasant climate. The flat concrete roofs on part of the building have been clad with white painted ceramic tiles to reflect heat. The pitched roofs are covered with terracotta tiles.
