John Patrick Winberry, AIA is the founding partner and architect at The Up Studio, an architecture, interior, and brand design studio in New York City, specializing in contemporary design.
John’s approach to architecture balances theory and approachability, comfortably guiding the client to an understanding of complex design theories. He is particularly drawn to simplicity and duality in design, using minimalist designs to maximize solutions across projects all while trying to bring joy and fun to the process.
Alongside the Architectural practice, John has lectured for the AIA, Architecture Record, and at New York Institute of Technology. He has also been an active design critic for multiple schools of Architecture.
The Up Studio is a national award-winning architecture, interior, and brand design studio that enhances people’s lives through concept-driven work. Their projects are customized to their clients’ needs, site specific, and rooted in a thoughtful design strategy.
They believe that every design has a story to tell. To tell that story, they employ a multidisciplinary approach that combines broad ideas, diligent organization, and innovative tools, presented within a coherent narrative.
