    Vales Residence, an architectural and technological innovation in its field, is located in the city of Merida Yucatan, Mexico. The idea for it's design is rooted in the need of a young couple for expressing their interest in art, architecture, and interior design. Projected by its owner, this twin house encompasses various kinds of materials such as metal, concrete, crystal, and water in an association that enriches the essence of simplicity that characterises the project.

    The use of volume and shapes opens the space into the lot and allows landscaping and natural light to create the refined, modern ambience that reflects the architect's feelings and ideas. The industrial-like metal work on the ceiling makes double-height spaces more elegant while keeping the perception of warmth a home must provide.
