Portland Commercial Architecture

Everyone deserves to work in a space that’s welcoming, comfortable and inspiring. For decades, the team at Merryman Barnes Architects, Inc. has been working to create commercial spaces that offer workers all this and more. We create commercial architecture in Portland, OR that makes people happy to come to work and proud of the place where they earn a living. Our designs contribute to companies and workforces that are happier, more productive and healthier.

Our approach to commercial space design is one that’s highly focused on the needs of each individual client we work with. We design and plan the spaces that will come to define your business, and we put total emphasis on doing justice to the image you want to project. Once we have your vision in mind, our underlying concepts can come into play—natural light, sustainable building materials, emphasis on communal space and depth-illustrating ceilings.
