Located in the beautiful resort City of Naples, Florida, this half million square foot vertically mixed-use project consists of office, retail, residential, theater, and park-ing facilities in 12 multi-level buildings designed and constructed in a multi-phased approach. The architec-tural design focuses on a mix of glass, stone, stucco, and metal in an elegant modern expression. National and local retailers line a pedestrian friendly shopping artery anchored by a national bookseller and Whole Foods Market at one end, and a second level luxury theater showing a combination of first run andart films at the other end.

Cooper CarryConnecting people to place
Focused on the innovative design of exceptional spaces and places, Cooper Carry is one of the nations most dynamic, context-driven design firms. Our projects are crafted to enrich the experience of the people who interact with them for a day or a lifetime.
An internationally recognized team of design professionals, with vast experience in a variety of project types, collaborate in the pursuit of excellence through the practice of connective design. Since our founding in 1960, we have steadily built a reputation for our attention to detail, thoughtful design and client service. Each project is a composition of imaginative connections amongst buildings and their components. But it doesnt stop there as we strive to incorporate our projects interaction with surrounding buildings, communities and the environment . . . all of which are impacted by the other. Connecting people to place is the cornerstone of our design philosophy and it is that connectivity which anchors our architectural, planning and urban design approach. As an example, our design process treats landscape with equal in importance to buildings and we pursue excellence in landscape design just as carefully as we do the design of the building itself. The net result then is that we combine architecture and landscape design into a rich composition of functional, thoroughly connected spaces, formed to enhance and join the experience of the inhabitant, thus celebrating not only the interior, but exterior environment as well.
Almost since our founding, sustainability has served as the foundation of our connective design philosophy. The result is that our team is inspired by the interconnections amongst natural systems which support our livesplants, animals and the physical world they inhabit. Consequently, we collaboratively pursue creative design solutions using nature as our model with the result being a more holistic project.
The connective design process simply assesses the sustainability of materials, the suitability of assembly methods, and the options for organizing buildings and landscapes into com-positions which tend to maximize the advantages of solar orientation, weather, natural light, building conditioning, and other variables which affect the buildings environmental perfor-mance. In essence, we seek ways to optimize the human experience, thereby elevating the quality of life for all who come to live, work or play within the spaces and places we design.
