The firm began more than four decades ago with two Arizona State University graduates eager to take on the architectural field with new and innovative design solutions. Along with the philosophies that a building must give back more than it takes and that behind every well-designed building is an architect who took the time to thoroughly understand the client’s needs, Herman Orcutt and Paul Winslow began building client-focused design teams that could offer personal service during each stage of the architectural process.
This progressive approach to service has allowed them a reputation of being one of Architectural Record’s Best Managed Firms, and a history of being one of the Valley’s leading architectural firms, Arizona’s American Institute of Architects Firm of the Year, and AIA Western Mountain Regional Architectural Firm of the Year.
