This is a THANK YOU to Workshop, Fabian, Fransisco and the entire team!
We purchased our house in Merida centro 7 years ago, our renovation started with what seemed the norm here. The realtor recommends a contractor and the renovation begins. We were living in the states and visited frequently to enjoy Merida and see the progress. Two years ago we retired and moved into the house. Of course all was not as it should have been. Workshop was recommended and we began working with Fabian and Fransisco. They made major improvements in the old house. They then took our concept of a second house for our master suite, sited at the back of the property and built around a giant tree to reality.
They are honest, reliable, responsive and stayed completely within budget. Incredible teamwork, fortunately we were smart enough to listen when they said "no not a good idea". Thanks to the Workshop team our house is now a home!
We feel so fortunate to have had the experience of working with this team and with the completed project to be able to call them great friends!!

You will be happy with there work. Our project was a brand new build 1 bedroom 2 bath with screened in covered patio. Plus studio apt. and separate laundry room with 2 pc.bath and roof top deck. Lot is 12x22 meters completely concrete pool and landscaped. They started to clear lot and build in April of 2016 and they were complete in about 3 and a half months with in a week of estimate of time.
We got one other quote but we did not feel comfortable with him. I was in building trade for over 40ty years in all aspects of it so you get to read people the other quote was a little cheaper and 1 month longer time frame. The cheapest is not all the best option I have seen these kind of night mares in the trade over the years. They were at site each day for a few hours depending on what was happening to talk to me and go over any concerns I had.
They were also available by phone or email 6 days a week.
The total experience was excellent I could not be any happier with the quality of the workmanship inside and out and I am a picky guy as I said was in the trade for years so it is hard to please me.
On completion the price stayed as quoted other than a few extra things I added on the go. Them and there crew were super friendly almost like family.

Fabian and Francisco are THE BEST in my book. The work they have done at my house, and continue to do, is first rate. Couldn't say enough about their professionalism. They are personable, attentive and in-tune with the desires and wishes of this client. I would recommend them without reservation to anyone in need of the services they offer. Greatfully.

When my wife and I arrived in Merida in early 2010, we were like many visitors who come to the "White City" to admire the architecture. We were stunned by the beautiful buildings, the history, museums and all that the city had to offer. What we didn't expect was the friendly and helpful attitude of the people who live here. It wasn't long before we decided that we would be happy renovating one of the old homes in Centro. We were on a tight budget and wondered if we would be able to build a house we would be happy living in. After talking with several firms and reviewing some outstanding plans, we decided to go with Workshop Architects . We knew that this was a decision that would determine success or failure. We were nervous of cost overruns, inability to communicate, their inability to understand what we wanted to communicate, timelines and all that is crucial to a successful build. We had no reason to be concerned. We now consider ourselves lucky to have made such a wonderful choice. Fabian and Francisco and their construction team were the best! They are proficient, efficient, and fun to be around. No cost overruns, weekly updates, great ideas and excellent construction. We are so impressed with the work and friendship, we have submitted adoption papers! They wanted this project to be a success as much as we did...and it was. Thanks guys! Go build a city!

We were introduced to Fabian and Francisco through friends who spoke very highly of their experiences with Workshop Arquitectos, and when we needed someone with their expertise to provide an unbiased, professional assessment of an older house in Merida in need of repairs and renovation, plus the installation of a swimming pool, we naturally contacted Workshop. Fabian and Francisco did an impressive, thorough job on site and provided us in a timely manner with a detailed analysis of what needed to be done to bring the property up to our expected standards, together with a breakdown of the costs, - fair and reasonable pricing with options provided. My husband and I were quite impressed! Even though we decided against purchasing the property in question , we will not hesitate to contact Workshop for other projects in the future, or to recommend their services to anyone. We wish them much success !

Workshop did such wonderful work on renovating my current house that I plan to have them build me a new home. I got far more than I expected and now I want to work with them to create my forever living space.
