Andres Escobar & Associates: beautifying the world, from NYC to the Seychelles

 

Andres Escobar & Associates was founded in 1989, quickly becoming one

of Montreal’s most renowned design firms. Its projects span across the world,

  

but the company first entered the New York City market in 2001 in Brooklyn, where the firm ingeniously converted the Gretsch Guitar Factory into condominiums.

Escobar’s vision has now been exported across the Pacific Ocean, where his work is being showcased at The H Resort Beau Vallon Beach, in the picturesque Seychelles.

 

With numerous innovative projects in cities over the world, from Miami to Abu Dhabi and beyond, Andres Escobar & Associates continues to push the boundaries of lifestyle design.
