FLINN FOUNDATION

PHOENIX, AZ

A 16,000 SF facility on Central Avenue that serves as a resource for non-profit and community health organizations within the state.  Located across from the Phoenix Art Museum it opened in early 2000. The material palette consisted of natural colors, stone-like masonry to accentuate the floating, uplifted roofline. 

 

The strategic use of glass throughout the structure gives it continuity into a series of sunken gardens and courtyards. The notion of urban philanthropy inspired the design of the new headquarters of the Flinn Foundation. Like a philanthropist, this office building interconnects to the specific qualities of its surroundings, blending in with the scale of the neighborhood and Central Avenue.

 

Paul Winslow, FAIA, was the architect of record and developed the conceptual design with the Flinn Foundation staff, he led the programming process, the design, and oversaw the construction administration while working at Orcutt/Winslow.
