From the architect. Located in one of the most majestic ravines in Cuernavaca, over a steep terrain, the building makes room for a dental ceramics studio, where different materials are melted using high-tech techniques.

The street-level floor, that portrays a distinctive concrete block, hosts the dental offices and operating room. Even though they are part of the dental ceramics studio, they have enough independence.

The mixed structure of the dental studio, located just one floor below the access level, is uprooted above a blowup of 6.7 meters. Its cover is resolved in the form of a visor, curving the roof to avoid the direct impact of the sun without compromising spectacular views of the ravine and the golf course.

The working areas are conceived as multidisciplinary spaces, where conferences, workshops, expositions and courses also take place. A resting area was also designed in the lower level of the building, in order to host speakers and specialists from all over the world.
