About the Speakers:
Marites Abueg, principal, Studio KDA. A licensed architect, Marites designed her first restaurant, A Cote, in 2000 (with Mark Becker Inc.) and was hooked on restaurant design’s perfect combination of food, communal gathering and sensory experience. Since then, she and husband Keith Morris formed Abueg Morris Architects designing over 40 food-related projects before combining forces with Charles Kahn, AIA to create Studio KDA. Marites is design obsessed and focuses her work on beautiful and balanced lighting, conversation-allowing acoustics, “right” color, ergonomics, and brand-supportive look, feel and fit.
