It feels like this house was made of harmony and meditative peace.

Mexico-based architects from Grupo Arquitectura proved that modern design can live in harmony with nature. Their La Casa en el Bosque (house in the woods) is situated right in the heart of the woods and is built with sustainable materials.  

Its huge glass walls offer not just breathtaking views of nature, they also offer solar control features to regulate heat in the house. But that’s not all.

La Casa en el Bosque’s best feature is a floating glass walkway, that connects areas of the house and allows you to feel surrounded by nature.

A network of metal beams hold, basically, two geometrical concrete structures, providing shared living spaces as well as bedrooms. The house features extras, too, like a terrace with hammocks to enjoy sunsets.
