“Architecture is about understanding the social construct of the building you are designing and then creating an environment that supports that construct,” said Paul Winslow, FAIA, partner architect, in a prepared statement.”Function and aesthetic are essential to complete the design, but understanding how users will use a building for social interaction is as critical for its success. Growing our team will allow us to build upon these principles.”

Projects from the winslow + partners studio include:

• Jefferson Academy Master Plan and Street Coffee and Tasty Box; Facilitation of the Re-Imagining or Balsz School District, in Phoenix;

• Marana School District Facilities Master Plan in Marana;

• Educational design and learning space environment for Gladden Farms Elementary School and Challenger Center addition, in Peoria;

• Heard Building innovation think tank and remodel and the urban mixed-use project at Country Club and Main in Mesa.

The locally-owned firm, winslow + partners, offers expertise in architecture, planning, interior design, educational planning and design thinking that stemmed from the legacy of Paul Winslow, FAIA. He founded the Orcutt/Winslow partnership where he was managing partner for most of his 50-year architectural career, the release detailed, noting the husband-wife team collaboration of Mr. Winslow and Kali Mota.
