I have known Andres Escobar for almost 20 years and have had the pleasure of working with him regularly over that time frame. It is a special gift to be so talented and versatile a designer as Andres. It is a virtue to be able to produce designs that are buildable, cost efficient, budget conscious, and professionally communicated to both construction and ownership alike. There are many innovative designers, but very few who can do it all, and do it as well as Andres. He is a talent. He is also a professional. He is also a pleasure to work with. His designs are inspired. He is on time. He can deliver what he promises. And he knows what he is doing. Can you ask for more? Yes, he is also a gentleman who is true to his word. As a residential real estate marketing professional, I heartily recommend Andres Escobar.

Andres and his team take such personal care of the client. Very responsive, he is available at any time, day or night, to answer any questions, concerns we may have about the development of the project. Open-minded about design, he actively listens to the personal tastes of his client and with his talent, he transforms initial ideas into the client’s request. His professionalism and vision truly push the project to the next level.
Andres Escobar and his team are easy to work with. He truly understood the vision we were going for and applied this vision to the final design of my office. Andres is prompt to respond if there is anything that needs doing. Even before contractors started the job, I got to visualize the final design via renderings. Thanks to him, the stressful process of putting together a project became a pleasant journey. Along with spatial planning, he helped with furnishings and communicating with material vendors. Most of all, we stayed friends and I am eager to refer him clients, so they can experience the talent of Andres Escobar and his firm.
It was a pleasure to work with Andres Escobar & Associates and their team of cooperative professionals throughout the transforming of the Stay Bridge Times Square Hotel in New York. I was thoroughly impressed with their uncompromising quality, which led to harmony and perfection in the final design. Consequently, our friendly experience with Escobar has led us to retain his services for the Holiday Inn project in Brooklyn.

Andres Escobar and his team provided tremendous insight with respect to design for our end user at 267 6th Street Brooklyn Development. His approach to generate multiple renderings allowed us to identify the important details and understand right from wrong. His team provided a detailed set of construction documents and they understood the value of constructability, working with ownership to achieve the end results by way of design implementation of the details. Sometimes simplifying the design and sometimes by selection of materials, Andres was mindful of budgets and thorough at understanding how to achieve both his and ownerships vision.

I have worked with Andres Escobar and his team on several condominium projects in Manhattan. Having worked with many different designers over the years, Andres’ creativity and wonderful sense of aesthetics combined with the ease of the design process with his team has always been a pleasurable and successful experience. I would highly recommend his services which cover a wide range of services beyond interior design.

There were few meetings that I would look forward to as much as those with Andres and his team as we were designing The Jade Hotel Greenwich Village. Andres was intuitive, brilliant, and always pragmatic during these collaborative meetings, as he would closely listen to our vision and then interpret our words into a sumptuous hotel environment that our guests and employees love. He nailed it.

When opening our new restaurant and lounge, NOIR, in Midtown Manhattan, we went through an entire renovation and Andres Escobar & Associates was commissioned to spearhead the design and decor of NOIR. Andres was the consummate professional and his expertise and eye for design and aesthetics are unmatched. Andres is not only one the most talented professionals in his field, he is a wonderful person to work with and his team was exceptional. NOIR gladly gives Andres Escobar & Associates our highest recommendation to anyone looking for a talented designer and a consummate professional.
George Iordanou, owner of The Hotel Noir New York
I have worked with Andres on several projects. From the first, it was clear that Andres was very professional and a pleasure to work with. He was always responsive to the marketing perspective without relinquishing his aesthetic perspective.
Later on, I came to realize how broad the spectrum of his creativity is and always at a high level of taste and freshness. I look forward to working together again

When we acquired 1080 Amsterdam and 103 East 86th Street, Andres Escobar & Associates helped us to go immediately to work in designing the interior design for the renovation of the units and the lobbies. We were astonished at how they were able to produce weekly progress drawings during the preliminary stage.

It was an honor and a pleasure to work with Andres to open Hotel Le bleu in Brooklyn. Brooklyn’s first Boutique Lifestyle hotel. I learned a lot from him. I was so impressed with how engaging he was and his team, from start to finish. Andres always asked for my thoughts on the functionality of his designs from a hotel operations standpoint. Andres was always accessible throughout the construction to answer questions. Even afterwards Andres and his team were making regular inquiry to learn about the flow of his design, customer feedback and if the materials used were functional for our needs as a hotel . Andres is a great designer with vision, perspective and always keeping an eye on functionality.
