Ideas Geniales de Dise?o

“En el proyecto LEB III ubicado en St. Croix USVI, AD&V proporcionó el desarrollo de dise?o para el mobiliario interior del centro comunitario, oficinas de administración, pabellón y espacio comunitario al aire libre. Las ideas de dise?o de AD&V fueron geniales. Eran vivas y encajaban muy bien con la sensación isle?a moderna que estábamos buscando para esta comunidad de viviendas asequibles recién construida. El alcance del proyecto no fue grande, pero trajeron el mismo tipo de compromiso y atención al proyecto como si fuera un esfuerzo de varios millones de dólares. Cristina y Mariana siempre estuvieron accesibles, atentas y profesionales. Espero volver a trabajar con AD&V en otro proyecto en el futuro.”

Vice Presidenta Senior de McCormack Baron Salazar

Soluciones Atemporales & Flexibles

“Cristina sobrepasó nuestras expectativas para el espacio limitado en nuestro apartamento de Nueva York en 1600 Broadway. Pudo acomodar a nuestra familia dentro de un presupuesto definido y razonable. Le dimos nuestras metas y objetivos, y luego le permitimos discreción absoluta en el dise?o. Sus soluciones únicas maximizaron nuestros espacios y muchos en el condominio consideran que es la renovación más ingeniosa hasta la fecha. Seguimos disfrutando de nuestro apartamento a?o tras a?o. Sus soluciones han demostrado ser atemporales y flexibles.”

Her solutions have proven to be both timeless and flexible.”
