Steve Wilke-Shapiro


Prior to joining Slingshot, Steve worked at a well respected design+build firm in Des Moines for several years. When he decided it was time to return to the traditional architectural world, he reached out to Slingshot. Steve’s experience and passion lies in historical renovation/rehabilitation architecture but is equally driven to learn and participate in all aspects of architectural practice. He has exceptional rigor and organizational skills, coupled with keen design skills which serve our clients well and blend with the other Slingshot members. Steve is very committed to volunteering in non-profit work. He is currently a Board member of Preservation Iowa and is the founder and a current Board member of the Des Moines Rehabbers Club.
