Beadle's Professional Offices aka The P.S. Studios Office
by Alfred Newman Beadle

3002 North 3rd Street

This building originally served as Al Beadle's architectural studio. In defiance of the midrises growing up around it, the building and its twin down the block on Catalina are both recessed underground. The Corbusian cliché of horizonal strip windows is taken to the extreme and adaped for a hotter climate, resultingin a building that barely peers up out of the earth. Beadle used this office to supervise construction of Mountain Bell across the street. Beadle Professional Offices on 3rd Avenue in Phoenix Steel columns are spaced on a 10 foot grid, enabling a modular open plan that can be subdivided at will. The windows are highly reflective in blue-black glass. The diagonal window dividers are purely graphic, and are similar to those used in larger scale at the Wosco Building which is amply bermed on a much larger scale. Beadle Professional Offices on 3rd Avenue in Phoenix Beadle's professional offices were renovated by The Construction Zone in the 2000s, who added the rusted steel elements, executed the interior design and improved the landscaping. Many of the design details shown here are the work of The Construciton Zone, not Al Beadle. It is now occupied by P.S. Studios. Beadle Professional Offices on 3rd Avenue in Phoenix
