This exclusive fashion boutique in AZULIK Tulum combines fashion, design, architecture, jewelry and art, within a space full of contrasts, textures, sensations and routes that invite those who enter to discover the collections of the store. The design respects the existing trees, adapting the construction to the natural configuration of the ground, and invites you to walk barefoot through the polished concrete finish, with footpaths and ramps over water mirrors, tunnels of natural leaves, spaces with networks and interior vegetation. The structure built with wood from the Yucatan Peninsula, such as jiles and bejuco, placed by Mayan artisans, evokes the surrounding jungle in which the boutique is located. These processes thrown light on local materials and techniques, discovering the potential of the natural, cultural and human capital of the region; guided by a firm commitment to sustainability and the hierarchy of native knowledge.
