“I’ve been involved in the financial industry in the US for over 35 years: from the Pacific to the New York Stock Exchanges; from Merrill Lynch to Standard & Poor’s. Several years ago, I moved into an ABIBOO designed building…In the case of ABIBOO’s conceived facilities, extreme care and artistry combine with the larger view, to produce legendary buildings that will stand time and [outlast] temporary fads…It’s what we call in my business, ‘a good trade.”
“My personal experience of working closely with the executive team of ABIBOO Studio has been refreshing, very valuable and highly professional. I look forward to the next collaboration.”
“The exclusive attention received [from ABIBOO] is very important; it is essential for me. I am thrilled that I met Alfredo and his team as they exceeded the expectations that I had for my house. I believe that if I ever build anything else again, it will definitely be with ABIBOO.”
“We at Gust University – Kuwait had a project in the educational sector and had a lot of challenges on the time frame that had been given to it. I selected ABIBOO and signed with them for their innovative and creative profile…They achieved our expectations to our entire satisfaction and finished the architectural project before the due date.”
