SELMAN & ASOCIADOS

TESTIMONIALS

ANTON CASASNOVAS | SOHO RESIDENCES

"Working with Selman & Asociados team was truly a gratifying and rewarding experience. Having worked with them as a contractor in previous projects, I had a clear understanding of their professional and creative way of approaching this type of unique and personal projects. Soho Residences was very important for me, not only personally but also on a professional level. We wanted to create our dream home and at the same time set a strong image of contemporary architecture as a brand mark for my future real estate projects in Santo Domingo D.R. Rafa and his team were able to harmoniously combine our practical needs as a growing family, with my commercial and aesthetic intent.

"Their work included architecture and interior design services, with collaborations of other professionals in technical designs and decoration. Both during design and construction phases, we appreciated their commitment, hard work and enthusiasm. With their design they were able to conceive a house with lots of natural light, spacious areas and a fantastic interaction between exterior and interior spaces. The use of noble materials such as natural stones and wood provide warmth and comfort along with the modern and minimal feel of the bold concrete volumes that shape the façade. The acute selection of furniture pieces brings an elegant yet practical feel to the whole ensemble.

Overall we are more than satisfied with the work. Our experience living the house has been very enjoyable and the response of the real estate market has been really positive. My relationship with Rafa has grown and we are currently working on various design projects that have emerged from the success we had with this project."

MICHAEL & MONICA BELCOURT || CACIQUE 32 VILLA

"We wanted to build a modern tropical home in Casa de Campo in the D.R.  We asked people if they knew an architect with style and experience with this modern minimalistic design. Rafael Selman, of Selman & Associates was recommended. We checked out references, and everyone said he was fantastic and they wanted to do another project with him, they also said he would become your friend.

We made a wish list of all the things we wanted in our “dream” house and discussed them with Rafael.  He designed a “casa” for us  which incorporated ALL our wishes and more!  The design was truly  “Tropical Modern” lots of open spaces taking  advantage of the climate and vistas.  Rafael, and his Team were always attentive and responsible.  It is not easy to build a home in the Dominican when you live in Canada, but Rafael and his team made it a wonderful experience for us.  They communicated with us by email regularly, and were always ready to meet us when we visited Casa de Campo.

What impressed us was the degree of education (excuse the pun) that the team possessed—and the professional approach.  We have designed and built other homes, this is the most professional, accredited group that we have worked with.  We will say that Selman & Associates is a truly professional and responsible operation and we would strongly recommend a working relationship. It has been a pleasure to work with them and we thank them for  designing our beautiful Tropical Modern home."

The renovation and expansion work done by architect Rafael Selman and his team to our Casa Bonita Hotel demonstrated not only their architectural design talent to do the job, but also their ability to understand and act in line with our vision and business strategy.

Royalton Punta Cana & Grand Memories Punta Cana were critical projects in the growth of our company. Our operations in Punta Cana were planned to be the launch point to the Royalton Brand & Memories brand.
