NEW YORK, NY – The stellar year for merzproject, a studio of Shepley Bulfinch, continued on December 3, when it was named one of the winners of Interior Design Magazine’s Best of 2009 in a celebration at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
At the event, merzproject was presented with a Merit Award in the “Showroom” category for the 12,000 s.f. B/S/H Gallery and Training Center in Scottsdale, Arizona. The facility provides seminar space, class rooms and a training center for one of the world’s largest appliance manufacturers, as well as serving as a wholesale and retail showroom.
