An inspiring sketch

Our Phoenix studio

In 2009, Shepley Bulfinch acquired [merz]project, establishing an office in Phoenix. Our passion for locally responsive, sustainable design remains a hallmark of our practice. Our fresh design attitude and recognized portfolio of work for some of the country's leading healthcare and education institutions, offers our clients a singular project partner.

Our collaborative approach finds fulfillment in the complete project, where intuition and imagination are realized in a final product that is beyond the expectations of the client. We are dedicated to assembling buildings that respect global environmental concerns. The act of constructing a building is the single greatest symbol of our ability to physically effect change in the world, and we believe that responsible design and construction processes are as important as the end product.

We bring our award-winning design attitude to the delivery of major institutional projects, challenging people to see and experience materials and light in ways they never imagined.
