DCOOP (Design Cooperative) is an architecture and interior design partnership, located in Jacksonville, Florida, with a unique approach to architecture and interior design: a cooperative approach that promotes collaboration with the design, construction and end-user team; challenges conventional wisdom; and creates bold, meaningful architecture and design.
DCOOP is composed of award winning design professionals from diverse and experienced backgrounds whose passion for design and deep love for the built environment underpin our dedication to craftsmanship and combine to make us particularly comfortable with the demands of modern design and construction.
Each of our principals and employees are long time Jacksonville residents and hold resumes that are the result of years of experience throughout the United States and Europe giving DCOOP the personal experience to successfully manage a range of project types and structures.
We approach each project with an open mind and endeavor to understand the identity of the project and its users in order to create a unique and intuitive solution for the building and surrounding community. We pride ourselves on using our client’s needs, desires and challenges as an opportunity to create the basis for an efficient, engaging and unique design solution.
Our work has been featured in numerous publications including Florida Caribbean Architect, the Florida Times-Union, the Jacksonville Business Journal, the Daily Record, Downtown This Week, Arbus, and Realty / Builder Connection. In 2006 we received an Award of Merit from the American Institute of Architects Jacksonville Chapter for Gallery 13, a conceptual design for the adaptive reuse of the Hayden Burns Library. In 2007 we received an Award of Honor from the American Institute of Architects Jacksonville Chapter for 16:flat, a 16-unit residential urban-infill project.
