Amezcua as Architects

Amezcua develops a modular wooden construction system that connects you with nature

Kineki is a patented “lifestyle” construction method which integrates natural elements with a visionary architectural design style and experiential purpose, inspired by and true toits core principles: modular cost-effective and quality rich manufacturing with renewable elements, sustainable low-impact materials, abundant and whimsical local flora accents, and assembled and fused with ease. Kineki flexibly supports infinite design considerations, which allow building-out almost any desired space configuration.  These principles simultaneously deliver the premium product in less time than traditional construction systems and within precisebudgetsand schedules.

The Kinekiconstruction methodis designed in a simple and elegant way, with baseline modules for kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms andliving rooms, and accommodate a variety of configurations,according to specificbudgetsoranticipated growth needs. Each basemodule dimension measures 3.6 meters wide, by 3.6 meters long, by 3.6 meters high, ensuring each module precisely interconnects with the other, offering multiple alternatives to construct a range ofproducts: house, store or pavilion, hotel room, classroom, cabin, dock and#Kinekioutdoor terraces.

Kinekiis an architecture to share and connect – in nature, with others, detached from desiresof exclusivity and separation and adapts blueprints and models to various specifications. Kineki has been created to connect an individual with a community; it is a link between families, friends and neighbors and nature. Humans, animals, rocks, sand, and plants reunite again and produce a joyous symphony igniting all senses. In this environment, the earth revives and nourishes nature’s roots and expands human souls.  Water, green tones, fire, the blues and blacks of the evening sky balancewith the stars, andthe infinite cosmos and the precious aesthetics of natural wood are revealed. Here the passage of time is a gift, a celebratedluxury steeped in the presence. Nothing is permanent, nothing is postponed.  The unimagined takes shape and healing and growth are certainties.  And so, our Earth takes a new turn.

Kineki is a lifestyle paradigm shift, because it comes to propose the opening of windows where there were walls. It is postulated as a countercultural movement, which converts a traditional real estate investment into an artisanal recipe adaptable to any environment, unencumbered byconventionalguidelines or popular tendencies. Kineki is a living and dynamic construction methodthat honors wood, the only ecological, sustainable, reusable, and recyclable material that stores carbon when it is manufactured and when architected to merge with nature, givesrise to a different way of respecting our origins in harmony withour environment.

Experiencing a Kineki home is like living in a recipe that evolves, organically and intentionally, with those who inhabit and share it. It transforms to give pleasure, with simplicity and functionality.

Prototype Outdoors
It is the name that was given to the terraces that we initially built in the Rosetta Restaurant in Mexico City and in the Bakery that bears the same name. We adapt and scale our wooden structure to the size of a car. Two Kineki Outdoors modules temporarily occupy a parking space, in order to extend the table area in times of Covid. Each terrace is manufactured in 7 days and installed in a few hours.
