The history, culture, colors and climate of El Salvador are important elements that are incorporated into it with the aim of creating a contemporary architectural design that is firmly rooted in its privileged site. An architectural language that incorporates the idiosyncrasies of the place, the culture and the Salvadoran people to create a new model of development, architectural and aesthetic program for an evolving culture and a growing economy.
