HW Studio Arquitectos has designed an all-white stucco home in Morelia, Mexico. The clients, a couple that have previously been burgled, wanted a minimalist design that would give them a sense of security.

Commenters were in love, one thought the home was a “beautiful response to the needs of the owner and to the social environment”, while another described the project as “austere but chic”.
