We present a non-perturbative model of Gauge-Higgs Unification. We consider a five-dimensional pure SU(2) gauge theory with orbifold boundary conditions along the fifth dimension, such that the symmetry is reduced to U(1) at the fixed points of the orbifold action. We explore the spectrum on the four-dimensional boundary hyperplanes which includes, apart from the U(1) gauge boson, a complex scalar, interpreted as a simplified version of the Standard Model Higgs field.
