George Catone, an Arizona-registered architect since 1998, founded the design firm Reset Studios in 2005.
A native of Pittsburgh, he received his professional degrees from Kent State University and spent the first part of his career in Pennsylvania designing large educational facilities. Relocating to Phoenix in 1996, he worked as second-in-command for two of the Valley’s signature boutique architectural design firms before launching his own studio.
George designs homes, commercial projects and public architecture. His success is built on bringing to every client not only award-winning design capabilities but also the effective construction detailing skills that make a design able to be built on a budget. He’s Pittsburgh practical and doesn’t dream on the client’s dime. He has a strong arts-based background and, in the best tradition of architects, engages in a broad range of design activities and relationships that fuel creativity and energize the practice.
Clients say George’s commitment to their projects is unparalleled. They choose to work with him again — and again—citing his fresh design solutions, integrity, amiability and willingness to go the extra creative mile (two if necessary). But then that’s just clients talking.
George also assumed duties with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on 21 June 2010 as the first-ever Senior Architect of the Phoenix Vertical Design Section for the Sacramento District Military Design Branch. His duties include leading the upstart local studio group of engineers through design and production of Military and IIS design projects. Notable projects for these programs include design of Medical projects at VA Hospitals in Loma Linda and San Diego, and Military projects at Imperial Beach, Camp Pendleton, Fort Huachuca, Fort Bliss and Pinal Air Park as well as multiple design projects at Fort Irwin, Davis-Monthan AFB, and Nellis AFB. In this capacity, George has additionally designed 1.5 million square feet of projects worth a combined constructed value of $521 million for the Federal Government.
