Los Amates House, located in Morelos, 60 kilometers South of Mexico City. Morelos is is a warm place with an adequate amount of green vegetation. But don't expect a conventional looking family abode from the Los Amates House, because this light, milky, and concrete frame really has what it takes to be an urban innovation amidst the green foliage surrounding it.

Kitchel residence is one of residence that placed on the hills and surrounded by environmentally sensitive forest. Designed by BOORA Architects, in Northwest Portland, Oregon. The house's boomerang shape and folded geometry aligns with the topography which produces a dynamic special quality and admits daylight. While designing the house the goal was to create a calm place which maintain openness while preserving privacy. In the result a 825-square-foot room was created that includes a kitchen, a dining area, and a living room on the lower floor. A bedroom and office perch above in a dramatically contoured, sparsely decorated loft. A 38-foot-long, two-level bookshelf filled with a prodigious collection of tomes snakes along the wall's inner surface, connecting the bedroom to the office along a hovering hallway. This solution doesn't take a lot of space or spoil aesthetic of the interior but store enormous amount of books. The extensive glazing contributes to the open and spacious feeling of the home, while the tree canopy provides privacy for the living spaces.
