Focused on the innovative design of exceptional places, 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 attention to detail, thoughtful design and client service. Each project is a composition of imaginative connections among buildings and their components. But it doesn’t stop there as we strive to incorporate our projects’ interaction with surrounding buildings, communities and the environment, all of which are impacted by each other.
Core practices at Cooper Carry include planning, architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, and environmental graphic design. These professionals work within specialty practice groups with expertise in:
Science + Technology
Connectivity is the cornerstone of our architectural, planning and urban design approach. Our design process treats landscape as being equal in importance to buildings and, therefore, we pursue excellence in landscape design just as carefully. Therefore, we combine architecture and landscape design into a rich composition of functional, thoroughly connected spaces formed to unite the experience of the inhabitant, celebrating experience of not only the interior, but exterior environment as well.
With sustainability as the foundation of Cooper Carry’s connective design philosophy our team is inspired by the interconnections among natural systems that support life — plants, animals and the physical world they inhabit. Consequently, we collaboratively pursue creative design solutions patterned with nature as our model with the net result being a more holistic project.
The connective design process assesses the sustainability of materials, the suitability of assembly methods, and the options for organizing buildings and landscapes into compositions which tend to maximize the advantages of solar orientation, weather, daylighting, 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 provide ongoing programs to increase our command of the techniques of sustainable design.
