RSP Architects has served clients for 34 years in more than 10 market sectors. The company, headquartered in Minneapolis has a three-foot-tall penguin named Opus for a mascot. With that said, RSP’s Phoenix office seems drawn to what can be described as “cool” projects. From the adaptive reuse of an old church to a Taco Guild in central Phoenix’s Old School O7 development to transforming an old motorcycle garage to a trendy restaurant hub known as The Yard, RSP is slowly adding vibrancy and density to the metro area. RSP was also involved with the innovative McCord Hall, which is a work of art as well as function on ASU’s main campus. RSP also worked on a student housing study at ASU and is currently working on collections for the School of Life Sciences at ASU, among other projects. The Phoenix office has also worked on two projects through a joint venture established in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
