We focus on close collaboration between ourselves, our consultants, and you.


Who We Are

Our philosophy adheres to design commitment and innovation, to explore each interior design project for its unique opportunities. We are committed to unparalleled client satisfaction and lasting relationships.

At the heart of our organization are our LEED and NCIDQ certified designers – creative talent that are great listeners. Teams are developed based upon the client and the project goals. They are dedicated from project inception to completion, ensuring continuity and design intent. Great project outcomes are derived from close collaboration between ourselves, consultants and the client. By designing for the client’s needs, the results express the personality, character, and parameters of each organization; not a signature interior design of McCarthy Nordburg.

We are a diverse group of innovative, intelligent and committed individuals who are some of the most talented designers around. We take pride in seeking smart design solutions that help develop timeless, inspiring and influential projects that have a positive impact on the interior environments as well as the bottom line. We represent various brands and cultures of the organizations we collaborate with and translate them into an interior architectural design to meet their functional, aesthetic and budgetary needs.

We believe in growth via education and training and are committed to cultivating talent through the sharing of a wealth of knowledge and actively encourage mentorship.

Client Love

Working with McCarthy Nordburg was amazing. The design team listened and provided a multitude of solutions. They were also super responsive to the timelines and a fun team to work with to boot! We recommend the McCarthy Nordburg design team to anyone seeking to design a world-class space.

Marianne Guenther, CEO, BIG YAM

We are excited to show off our space and the staff is thrilled with the new environment. It is a collaborative creative work space that meets our needs. We got everything we requested, within budget and on time.

Melissa Ferris, Invitation Homes

When we said our ideal office would liken a restaurant or hotel, we never dreamed it could become a reality. The McCarthy Nordburg design team listened to what we wanted.

Brent Shetler, Mindspace

A genuine pleasure to work with; the McCarthy Nordburg team took our many changes in stride as PXG was growing as fast as (and sometimes faster than) we could design and build!" "We provided the McCarthy Nordburg team with a huge challenge - take an old warehouse and transform it into a world-class facility that includes a stunning retail space, state-of-the-art fitting area, multiple entertaining options, a production facility, storage and also office and meeting spaces. They took this challenge head on and exceeded every expectation.

Mark Schrecker General Manager, PXG

McN's work has made our leasing much easier in a tough market. I contribute their ability and great taste in design to make our spaces much more desirable.

David Calvin, Kierland Corporate Center

The McN team exceeded our expectations in all categories, and I couldn't have been happier with how the project was managed to the end with a functional, timeless space.

May Carr, Senior Architect, University of Arizona, now retired

McN's knowledge and experience was the perfect addition to our architectural practice on Sutter Medical. The result was a highly aesthetic interior environment with durable finishes and furnishings, and their management and process was aligned with the client.

Steve Stack, Principal Devenney Group

Thanks to the McN team, the space came out really nice, with a good functional design. McN acted as my local eyes and ears on the project.

Howard Pearce of Oxford Global

McN really listened to what we were after and what our objectives were and managed those expectations in an appropriate manner, and our expectations were exceeded every step of the way.

Tom Fischer and Debra Stevens, OnTrac

No matter the client's scope or size, the designers at McN just understand how to manage both the client and the services they are providing in the most professional way.

Brenda Denney, President of The Owners Representative

The best part of working with McN is their ability to listen. They ask the right questions, listen to our feedback, and translate that information into a design that meets our needs. We have worked with other architects in the past who seemed too proud of their own design to hear our concerns or consider alternative ideas. This hasn't been a problem with McN, they believe in a different approach. The communication and collaboration from the team at McN has played a significant role in the overall success of our branch remodel projects.
