Cooper Carry Connecting people to place Focused on the innovative design of exceptional places and spaces, Cooper Carry is one of the nation’s 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 thoughtful design, attention to detail, and client service. Our goal with every project is to maximize its interaction with surrounding buildings, the environment, and the community . . . all of which are instrumental in our Connective Design approach. Connective Design is the cornerstone of our architectural, planning and urban design approach. For example, our design process treats landscapes as being of equal importance to buildings; therefore we pursue excellence in landscape design just as carefully. The result is that we combine architecture and landscape design into a rich composition of functional, thoroughly connected spaces formed to unite the experience of the inhabitant, celebrating theexperience of both the interior and the exterior environments. Likewise, we treat the interiors of the space with the same attention to detail, recognizing the impact that quality interior design has on not only the space itself, but the inhabitants of the space as well. With sustainability as the foundation of Cooper Carry’s Connective Design philosophy, our team is inspired by the interconnections between natural systems which support our lives. We collaboratively pursue creative design solutions patterned with nature as our model with the result being a more holistic project because we consider how plants, animals and the physical world they inhabit, impact all that we do. The Connective Design process assesses the sustainability of materials, the suitability of assembly methods, and the options for organizing buildings, their interiors and the landscape around them into compositions which tend to maximize the advantages of solar orientation, daylighting, weather, building conditioning, and other variables that affect the building’s environmental performance. And 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 space. Our commitment to environmentally responsible design is evident in our comprehensive, ongoing in-house education program to support LEED accreditation of team members and to provide ongoing programs, increasing our command of the techniques of sustainable design.
