Gunn Meyerhoff Shay was founded in 1956 beginning with Bob Gunn and Eric Meyerhoff after they graduated together from the University of Florida. In 1996, Patrick Shay merged his firm of 15 years with Gunn And Meyerhoff Architects, becoming equal partners with Bob and Eric. Over the past 60 years, Gunn Meyerhoff Shay has grown steadily in its leadership and capacity.
Today, with the assistance of cutting-edge technology and a team of creative associates, the firm has positioned itself to continue that leadership for generations to come. Mr. Shay led the firm into the hospitality market, helping to create over 20 hotels in the National Landmark District. He has also been the lead design architect and principal-in-charge on many Georgia projects, including, but not limited to the Savannah Cultural Arts Center, Historic One West Victory, Homewood Suites on River Street, Villa Marie Master Plan, Benedictine Military School Master Plan, River Street Place, Savannah Health Department, Mulberry Inn, and the recently completed Alida Hotel for Rockbridge Hotels.
