"Highly Recommend. In our experience, Alberto has an approach that I believe people will find very rare and refreshing these days. As an example, even before a formal arrangement was defined, he made multiple site visits to give us his friendly professional opinion about a property we ultimately purchased. He was extremely accommodating and friendly throughout the entire process.
Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about both the architectural and Contractual-Construction aspects of the business, he seems to have a great natural sense for what the client is looking to do, with the ability to easily understand surrounding alternatives that might make the most sense for the lifestyle in question.
Whether it's layout design or material selection for example, he's got an opinion, and has the right approach in sharing it. He is punctual, professional, and was a pleasure to deal with throughout. Even when completed, he is type to always be available for questions and help you work through resolutions, whatever the issue might be. I would strongly recommend him and his firm to anyone looking for architectural design or construction services."

“Living in the home that Architect Alberto Zavala designed for me is essentially living in a home proper for Yucatan,in other words living in a tropical house suited for Merida.I enjoy very much the fluidity achieved between interior with exterior living areas,terrace and pool areas,garden areas,service areas as well as private areas.I have lived over a year in my home,without using air conditioning,the units are there, but there is no need for using them…the house is so fresh! design strategys were conceived to serve the house and to live in a smart way, in a smart budget,as he told me since the begining...keeping things simple…has really worked.The exquisite palette of materials closes a very unique design that happens to transform our daily living in a marvelous encounter of peace and happiness!”

“We purchased our property in San Crisanto, Mexico, several years ago. When looking for an architect to build our dream home our lawyer recommended Mr. Zavala. That was the best recommendation we ever received. Of course when we started building, since we live so far away in Lansdale, PA, USA, we were very skeptical, but Alberto immediately put us to ease with weekly pictures of the progress of our house being built. His workmanship is outstanding. The design of the house fit us perfectly. The materials and labor used were of the best quality. We not only hired an architect we gained a friend. If we/when we decide to build in the future, Alberto will be the one we would call to follow through with the project.”

“From our very first meeting, Architect Alberto Zavala exhibited excellent written and verbal communication skills to ensure the success of our vision of an oceanfront beach house. He was able to accomplish this through outstanding listening skills with a passion for his work, backed by drive and a strong work ethic. Architect Zavala translated our ideas onto paper using his drawing and sketching skills, and via computer programs presented a final 3-D design. He collaborated very effectively with other architects, engineers, attorneys, as well as environmental and other governmental agencies to complete a turn-key design, permit, and build process. Finally, Architect Alberto Zavala is a relaxed, easygoing professional who successfully integrates mechanical, electrical, and structural elements into his designs, taking into account the unique requirements of the specific building materials of the Yucatan.”

"We put our trust in Alberto Zavala to design our dream beach home for our partial retirement in Mexico.  He did not disappoint - the design he provided to us captured all of elements we wanted to incorporate in our home, as well as designing it perfectly to fit in our beach front environment.  We can't wait to begin construction!"

“His hi sensibility with the environment and close relation to nature”,define from my point of view the design approach of Architect Alberto Zavala.That is why when I thought in remodeling my home outside Merida and the total design and construction of my Yacht-Marina “Paraíso”development,I didn´t hesitate in calling Architect Zavala.His experience,outstanding design concepts that blend interior with exterior,as well as sensitive proposals that incorporate the use of contemporary and natural finishes with design strategys like natural cross ventilation,respect to site,working with natural light,create at the end a joyful architecture...Keeping things simple,having the budget always in mind since design phases,taking care of the overall administration in a very organized way,resulted in my total satisfaction,and has won a constant approval and recognition of friends and clients.”

Manuel Gutierrez,Mérida,Yucatán

“Alberto was recommended to us by a neighbor who owned a lot near ours on the Gulf coast of the Yucatan. They had used Alberto as their architect and were very pleased with his services, so we decided to use him as our architect as well. We couldn’t be happier with him. He’s very professional as well as personable and proved to be very flexible as well as prompt, throughout our whole process. Although, we have not gotten to the building stage, I know from our neighbor’s experience with their building, that he kept them up-to-date on the status and even e-mailed them weekly photos of the progress. This was important to us, since we weren’t able to be there on a regular basis to oversee the process. The quality of the craftsmanship was outstanding as well. We would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to build in the Yucatan.”

Richard and Jane Johnson,Savannah, Georgia, USA

“Working with Alberto was very easy even though we were thousands of miles apart. We were able to go from concept to fully designed project with very little effort. He has a great eye for design and understands the special needs of the client and the environment he is working in. I would recommend Alberto without hesitation whether you are working on the coast or in the city.”
