Stephanie Paolino RA, EDAC, LEED AP BD+C



Stephanie has over 23 years of experience at Vision 3 Architects. As a Senior Associate at the firm and the Healthcare Team Leader, Stephanie has strong project and design leadership capabilities, especially in the areas of primary care, dental and community health center design. She successfully implements patient centered design and translates it into the built healthcare environment. Stephanie holds a certification in Evidence Based Design and brings an in depth understanding of how to base design decisions on the latest healthcare research to achieve the best possible patient, staff and operational results.

As a LEED Accredited professional, she is responsible for the integration of energy conservation and sustainable design principals throughout the design process. Stephanie enjoys working with her clients as she leads them through all phases of their project from predesign through construction administration. The most rewarding aspect of healthcare design for her is knowing that a completed project will help an organization to achieve their immediate goals and will continue to shape how that organization will operate in the future. Some of her recent projects were for Providence Community Health Centers, Thundermist Health Center, PACE RI, and Brown Medicine.

Stephanie lives in Warwick with her husband David and their two teenage children. They spend their quality time together playing with their dog, watching movies, hosting pool parties, and enjoying summers at Roy Carpenters Beach.
