Minimalist Mexican House Architecture
Los Amates House lies in a tourist resort in Morelos, 60 kilometers South of Mexico City. This single-family house is designed by Jorge Hernandez de la Garza (JHG) in contemporary style inside and outside. Its light, milky, concrete frame looks like an urban dot in gorgeous vegetation. In the first level, light vertical reinforcements and a glass curtain give free space to the dining room-parlor area. A detailed wooden lattice makes it possible to communicate the guestâs bedroom with all the other services of the house and it gives warmness and texture to the project. The second floor holds the private space of the house. The double-height in the parlor and a light folding glass integrate the house to the context and make it possible that the outer and inner spaces become one. The swimming pool also makes it possible to merge the atmosphere of the house with its natural surroundings.
