Coral Gables, FL
The Village of Merrick Park is a mixed-use project with retail, ofﬁce and residential components developed in Coral Gables, a city known for its stringent codes which protect a wonderful heritage of architecture and landscaping. Working with the client, local historians and the city’s planning department, Sussman/Prejza identiﬁed the peacock, an integral part of the area’s early lore, as the project’s design motif. From this starting point, Sussman/Prejza developed the Village’s brand identity, sculptural elements and special graphics in addition to the signage and streetscape.
