House of Walter Guzman Aspiazu (Heritage)

Casa del Sr. Walter Guzmán Aspiazu


Italian architect Francisco Maccaferri built the house of Walter Guzman Aspiazu between 1927 and 1929.
Its relevance is marked for being the only house that depicts the transition between the abandonment of classic schemes and the beginning of the rationalization of architecture. The Garaje Guayas, one of the first of the city, is located next to the house, and it is part of the same architectonic building.


The luxurious house reminiscent of Art Nouveau (new art) built in concrete and marble, in which stands out its circular marble staircase that is considered one of the most beautiful of the city.

Panama Avenue and Imbabura Street.
