WorldStudio International


About us

Worldstudio, Inc. was founded in New York City in 1993 by David Sterling. During the subsequent ten years, with business partner Mark Randall, he developed the company as a full-service design studio, with services including both print and 3-D design. Clients ranged from New York New York Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, to the Times Square Business Improvement District and the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

In 2003 Sterling and partner Keith Heitke relocated to Mérida, Yucatán, and opened the Latin American office of Worldstudio International, Inc. The studio is committed to interdisciplinary design, with a focus on interior design and remodeling projects.

The gentrification phenomenon that is sweeping Yucatán has had many consequences – the most positive of which is the rescate (rescue) of many historic homes that were otherwise falling into ruin.

We began our business by restoring our own home – a process that took 14 months. Our project was so successful that it has been published in a number of books and magazines. It is currently a stop on the popular Mérida English Library House & Garden Tour. The many visitors we have had comment on the home’s richness and attention to detail. In fact, it is because of the scores of enquiries we received for design help that we found the impetus to launch Worldstudio International, and put our experience with the unique issues of design and renovation in Yucatán into the service of helping others do the same.

One home at a time, we are proud to be a small part of the wonderful Rescate del Centro Histórico de Mérida!
