About

Two Workshops. Three Disciplines. Many Years.

Long positioned as multidisciplinary, and with a roster filled with multi-talented people, should you find a moment to visit us in either our Washington or Miami workshops, you’ll find these cornerstones of our business offer the perfect environment from which to bring-to-life the projects of distinction that our business and our reputation have been built around.

Much of this website is (understandably) devoted to showcasing the many projects we have worked on, but here we’d just like to offer a bit of an introduction to… us.

Our company is not one thing, our people are not one-dimensional. Our workshops are true collaboration spaces where we operate and integrate and negotiate and cultivate and fabricate and… well, you get the idea.

Washington D.C. Design Workshop.

Our Washington D.C. design workshop is where it all began, where our practice first took shape and then took-off with projects near and far. A constant hive of activity, the D.C. studio is also where our cross-functional, collaborative approach was refined.

From our historical old town neighborhood, our multidisciplinary practice has grown thanks to a deep understanding of the market, a member’s feel for the community, and a well-developed appreciation for the context in which our work is brought to life.

Miami Design Workshop

As we grew, with opportunity taking us across the country and into the Caribbean, Miami emerged as the ideal choice for expansion. The Wynwood area, best described as an aggregation of inspiration, is home to our new (but very Winstanley!) workshop.

Our new studio offers expertise in designing for coastal environments and a deep appreciation for the urgency of sustainability and resiliency in the area. Winstanley’s Wynwood workshop is both well-suited and well-seated to contribute to Miami’s modern, thriving metropolis.

BLURRED LINES. NOT BLURRED VISION.

Planning. Architecture. Interior Design.

In the real world, projects don’t fit in neat, logical boxes. The lines between Planning,
Architecture and Interior Design are at best blurry. So, when we look at a project, we don’t
see just the slice of it called architecture, our multidisciplinary perspective allows us to
consider the whole project as something to be brought together with vision, expertise and care.

Even when only working on one aspect, we understand, anticipate and manage the connections between the various (so-called) phases of a project.

Our multidisciplinary firm, staffed with multitalented people, is ideally suited to pursue opportunities in Planning, Architecture, and Interior Design.

MULTI-MARKET

Academic, Commercial, Civic, Hospitality, Residential. And then some.

While it’s fair to say we have strengths in certain market segments, it’s perhaps our greatest strength that we maintain our generalist perspective. As the lines between building types fade and overlap, we are very much in our element creating spaces that serve many (multi!) needs.

We have a strong history of working in the education sector to deliver thoughtful, long-lasting solutions. Our work in the commercial and public/civic arenas is at once practical and remarkable. And our multi- and single-family residential portfolio is noteworthy for the unique, warm and inviting environments we create.

“We offer the full multi! (Multi-disciplinary, multi-talented, multi-market and multi-city.)”

A Team to Trust

We pride ourselves on the diversity of our practice and our senior, seasoned, expert group who are so adept at solving problems, creating the awe-inspiring and making dream homes, spaces and workplaces come true.

Within our twin workshops, you’ll find our collective sleeves rolled up and everyone engaged in projects, design work, model building, planning, and so on.

Whether creating a small commercial interior, designing a multi-storied urban tower, or managing a long-term planning assignment, we are driven by a commitment to design.

Regularly, we go out on a figurative limb working creatively and conceptually. At the same time, our technical focus never waivers from ensuring we build-in practical and efficient building systems that are long lasting and trouble free.

Over the years, we are gratified to have enjoyed a broad appeal that has certainly contributed to our success. We find we attract clients who appreciate that the value of design can be considered both from aesthetic and practical perspectives.

Poplar Point Master Plan - Artist Housing and Academic Reserve
.
A portion of the site has been set aside for academic uses. Washington, DC is home to many outposts for nationally recognized  colleges and universities seeking to provide an opportunity for their students to participate in the city. 
In this academic enclave, a core program providing shared uses of a library, classrooms and food services with the individual institutions providing living facilities for the visiting students.
Additionally,  part of the project includes affordable work/live housing for local artists as well as an arts focused elementary school that has been relocated from another part of the site.

Poplar Point Master Plan - The challenge was to create a livable and meaningful mixed use development in an area of Anacostia that currently has no context. The design solution focused on the creation of a new arts district anchored on the water by a private modern art museum and a public exhibition building.

Color and pattern were our tools in designing the new exterior skin of the Annapolitan is an assisted living facility in Annapolis, Maryland.  Our team proposed replacing the existing façade with a fiber cement siding which allowed us the use of color and patterning.  The final design is both bold and playful with color and shadow giving the building scale and character.
