Using stone, wood, and glass, Mexican firm CC Arquitectos has built a woodland house supremely in tune with its surroundings, the picturesque Valle de Bravo region west of Mexico City. (How serene is it? Just look below for the portrait of one lucky cat enjoying the property's reflecting pool and garden.) Spread over 5,382 square feet, the one-story house contains stepped floors that, as Dezeen reports, "follow the gentle slope of the landscape." Inside, the extensive wood beaming and wooden furniture create a uniform natural, cozy feel. Large stone walls do sneak in and break up some of the material monotony though. Take a closer look.
