About Jon Paul

Jon Paul’s desire to create life-changing, healing environments serves as the driving force for his work. According to Jon Paul, “The best designs take a good concept and carry it through to the smallest details.” While growing up in Madrid, Spain, his parents owned construction and marketing companies, so becoming an architect was a blend of both influences. Jon Paul specializes in healthcare architecture, working with small community hospitals as well as large teaching hospitals. But, healthcare is not his only area of expertise. He also has worked on corporate, religious and residential projects, among others. With more than 14 years of experience and having practiced in Miami and Atlanta, Jon Paul leads the HKS Tampa healthcare practice.
