Mary Brickell Village
The oasis lies in the middle of a dense downtown.
“Wood, water, and green”—three ingredients combined to set the scene for an open-air, low-scale village in the center of the city. For Mary Brickell Village, we were asked to create a casual, mixed-use space that connected city blocks and gave area residents a place to congregate. And so the mood became just an important as the architecture itself.
By preserving mature trees, incorporating park-like plazas, and including the soft sounds of gently moving water, a very Floridian, laid back space emerges. And in the middle of a tightly packed, high-rise concrete area, this design philosophy sets the space apart.
This project was completed by Beame Architectural Partnership prior to joining RSP.
