Description
This is a style that existed on the island of Guam before WWII. Homes such as this and other buildings could have been seen before the American bombardment of the island's capital. As a result, only a few remain today. These homes were unique in that they were built of mampostería, a type of building construction that uses stone rubble and lime mortar. This along with other construction techniques were brought to the Marianas during the Spanish colonization of the islands. Common elements such as thick exterior stone walls, a bodega, outdoor stairs, capiz windows, ifit wood flooring, and a tile roof typify these homes. #agana #architecture #bodega #capiz #colonial #guam #hagatna #home #mamposteria #spanish #tile #vernacular
