What Our Clients Say About Us

Excellent Job

The AD&V team created a thoughtful design and understood what we wanted to achieve with our project. They did an excellent job, we’re thankful for everything that they did!

Co-Founder & Chairman of McCormack Baron Salazar

Timeless & Flexible Solutions

“Cristina more than met our expectations for our limited space in our NYC apt at 1600 Broadway. She was able to accommodate our growing family within a defined and reasonable budget. We gave her our goals and objectives, and then allowed her absolute design discretion. Her unique solutions maximized our spaces and many in the condominium consider it to be the most ingenious renovation to date. We continue to enjoy our apt year after year. Her solutions have proven to be both timeless and flexible.”

Ruben Jordan

Owner of 1600 Broadway

Great Design Ideas

“On the LEB III project located in St. Croix USVI, AD&V provided design development for the interior furnishings for the community center, management offices, pavilion, and outdoor community space. AD&V’s design ideas were great. They were lively and fit in nicely with the modern island feel that we were seeking for this newly constructed affordable housing community. The scope wasn’t large, but they brought the same kind of commitment and attention to the project as if it was a multi-million dollar effort. Cristina & Mariana were always accessible, attentive and professional. I look forward to working with them again on another project in the future.”
