Alex Stone grew up in Winter Park and attended the University of Florida where he received a Bachelor of Architecture degree in 1972.
From 1972-1975 Alex worked in the Winter Park architectural firm of W. Sullivan Donahoo who had studied at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin Studio. This practice was focused on producing high quality residential architecture.
In 1976, after a severe recession wiped out many small architectural firms, Stone went to work for Helman Hurley Charvat Peacock Architects in Winter Park and remained there for 20 years in the capacity of senior design architect. During this time, he designed many of the area’s modernist structures including K 92 FM Radio Station, Florida Eye Clinic, Cancer Centers for Winter Park Hospital and Florida Hospital East, SunBank Altamonte Office Building and Heart of Florida Replacement Hospital. A number of these projects were recognized on a regional, state and national level by the American Institute of Architects for Excellence in Architecture.
In 1996, Alex left HHCP Architects and opened his own design studio. The practice is currently focused on providing quality design solutions for new residences, residential additions and small commercial projects. All projects, regardless of size, are given the same attention in order to create a handsome and appropriate design solution, tailored to individual needs.
Alex currently lives in Maitland in a modernist home of his own design and construction, with wife Cynthia and daughter Ciera.
