Text description provided by the architects. The idea of this project is born of creating a barrier of environmental protection because the front is faced the west one. Like result, the design of a few stelas is proposed with stone Tok’, that is a material representative of our entity, inspired in the Mayan culture; these shape a free front that they allow the main volume of the project to enjoy an opening with the handling of big glazed areas, working like a thermal insulator giving privacy and turning into an imposing element that defines the character of the building.

Thanks to the handling of the vegetation and stone of the region that appear as protagonists in every space, a harmonic contrast is achieved between the present steel in the structure, the wood used in the furniture, the transparence of the crystal and the big stelas of stone.
