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.

“The diversity of our thinking is illustrated in the diversity of work.”

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.

Big Ideas
Inventive Solutions
Projects Built or Approved
Design Awards

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.

“Winstanley operates from two exciting workshops. (That’s one more than Santa!)”

Model Citizens.

This is a small, but important facet of ‘us.’ While we embrace technology and our technical capabilities and CAD skills are top drawer, we also believe that our vision is often best shared and interrogated through the creation of old-school, detailed, 3-d architectural models. To us, it’s just a part of our craft and an important step between renderings and reality.

“Physics, logic, design, utility, flexibility, creativity and little bit of OMG. That’s all our clients expect.”

Hangar 110 is located in the heart of the Patuxent River Naval Air Station and was one of the first structures built at the base. It was built in 1942 with a new and relatively unproven type of construction. The innovative ZD-type concrete hangar was a poured-in-place, thin-shell concrete construction system poured over massive forms that were moved on rails. It was one of the largest such structures built in the United States up to that point and is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.

Our work renovating historic Hangar 110 Naval Air Station in Patuxent River involved designing a sophisticated fire suppression system that was delivered from the floor to protect the aircraft.  However, the most interesting part of the Hangar’s history are the graduates of the school that include illustrious alumni with “The Right Stuff”: Alan Shepard, John Glenn, and Walter Shirra among others.

The Provincetown house was designed with a covered outdoor porch with a gas fireplace for evenings overlooking the water.
Situated on a coastal dune directly on the waterfront of the Provincetown Harbor, the 3,000-sq-ft wood-frame residence was designed to evoke the historical memory of Provincetown Harbor, whose shorelines once boasted hundreds of piers jutting into the water, through the expression of the wood pier structure of the house.

Our master plan for Buzzard Point in Washington, DC integrated sound planning principals including ground and water transportation networks to access the remote sections of the neighborhood.  We also designed concepts for the old Coast Guard Headquarters to be converted into a multifamily building.  Following that assignment we worked with DC United to design the urban fabric surrounding the stadium.
