Our headquarters house the sister charities of The Dr. P. Phillips Foundation and Dr. Phillips, Inc. – together, Dr. Phillips Charities.  Like many buildings in the neighborhood, Mediterranean-style architecture was selected and extensive landscaping used to compliment and blend with the surrounding residential areas.  Of particular note - our building is designed to meet LEED certification as environmentally responsible and energy-efficient.

The design and construction of our headquarters also incorporates several historical architectural elements.  These include:

  • Dr. Phillips Headquarters CorridorDr. Phillips Headquarters Corridor

    The two-story facade wall with the scalloped top on the front of our building mimics a similar feature of the old Dr. Phillips citrus packing plant formerly located on Apopka-Vineland Road
  • The round stair tower, also on the front of our building, is similar to the stair tower of the Phillips family home on Lake Lucerne in downtown Orlando and, like the Phillips home, is topped by a similarly-designed weathervane
  • The Corinthian columns which surround the central courtyard are similar to the entry columns of the Phillips family home
  • Brick is used in various areas of the grounds as a modern application of the old red brick used prominently in buildings constructed by Dr. Phillips
  • The pediment in the shape of a swirled cone at the top of the circular stairs in the central courtyard is the actual pediment that topped our former headquarters building in downtown Orlando
  • The roof tiles are similar to the old clay tiles that adorn the front our former headquarters building
