Los Amates House designed by Jorge Hernandez de la Garza (JHG).

form Jorge Hernandez:
Casa Los Amates lies in a tourist resort in Morelos, 60 kilometers South of Mexico City. The vegetation and the warm weather of the area, as well as the client´s needs, were three important factors for the design of this house. A light stone platform separates the house from the ground. In the first level, light vertical reinforcements and a glass curtain give a free space to the dining room parlor area. A detailed wooden lattice makes it possible to communicate the guest’s bedroom with all the other services of the house and it gives warmness and texture to the project. A thin concrete plane that folds itself structures and gives the private space of the house in the top floor; an outdoor corridor serves as a view and link to communicate each space in this level.

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 complements the program; it begins in the platform and it makes it possible to merge the atmosphere of the house with its natural surroundings.
