The concept for this development arises from the idea of combining two cultures, the Greek and the Mayan, the Greek referring to the dishes that are prepared in the place, and the Mayan being the main ethnic group in this area of the country. Although this project represents the combination of both cultures, we gave ourselves the task of focusing on a single element, the main structure that gives birth to the space and supports a large part of the complex, which is located on a mangrove swamp. Undoubtedly, the biggest challenge was this central structure, making it transform into a sculpture.
