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.


This urban house is located in Mexico City and it was designed by Gomez Crespo Arquitectos. It has irregular form which responds to different parts of landscape. A blend of limestone, glass and steel was used to give the house a strong modern even minimalist look. As many houses in this region it’s strongly connected with outdoor spaces and has awesome views around it. The whole first floor has contact with gardens surrounding the house. Big windows allow to catch as much natural light as possible. Neutral colors and materials as well as high-tech lighting system help house to be in contrast with landscape and add it some elegance.
