Architecture firm Perkins&Will has united with San Francisco-based Tim Murphy Design Associates (TMDA), to enhance their services throughout the Bay Area.
Once TMDA moves into Perkins&Will’s San Francisco studio this summer, clients will benefit from expanded design leadership and a strengthened interiors practice.
TMDA is known for creating upscale offices, hospitality spaces, restaurants, and residences. They have previously worked with Accel in Palo Alto, Kleiner Perkins in San Francisco and Menlo Park, and SurveyMonkey in multiple locations.
The San Francisco studio of Perkins&Will has spearheaded urban design projects across the district, such as Mission Rock, Potrero Power Station, and Sacramento Valley Station, as well as buildings like 1 De Haro—San Francisco’s first multi-story mass timber office building—and the adaptive re-use of the historic Building 12 at Pier 70. Their current projects include several production, distribution, and repair (PDR) buildings, as well as large-scale work with institutions such as UC Hastings and Samuel Merritt University.
“Both Perkins&Will and TMDA believe cultivating collaborative partnerships with our clients is essential to creating impactful design solutions,” says Greg Johnson, managing director of Perkins&Will’s San Francisco studio. “We both center our projects on the client’s vision and values, and this merger will add new dimensions to our multi-disciplinary practices of architecture, planning and strategies, urban design, and landscape architecture.”
