Shepley Bulfinch announced that Jeremy Kotter, AIA, has joined the firm’s Phoenix office as a leader in residential and mixed-use design.

Kotter joins Shepley after managing his own architecture practice in Wisconsin and Arizona, with portfolio of work for civic, institutional, and private clients and a passion for inherently sustainable practices.

His award-winning designs focus on natural material expression and simple palettes, inspired by his extensive travels around Taiwan, where he undertook a series of pro bono projects.

He received his Master’s degree in Architecture from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Illinois Wesleyan University. He is a registered architect in the states of Arizona and Wisconsin and a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
