Group 4 Design won two awards Friday, March 28, at the Illuminate Awards. The event was hosted by the IIDA North Florida Chapter.
Awards won by Group 4:
The office rebuild award is especially meaningful to the Group 4 team. Hurricane Irma flooded our offices in 2017 and presented a challenge no business wants to face: How do you keep going after a catastrophic event? This was new territory for us.
The answer was "through our amazing relationships." We lived briefly with our friends at Summit Contracting and used the libraries of DesignMind and Reynolds, Smith & Hill. We also received help from:
We're humbled by your support and grateful for your friendship. All we can say is "thank you."
Community is essential to Group 4's mission. From our industry partners to our client partners, we learn something new about our community with each project. Relationships with clients Smith, Hulsey & Busey – who have served Jacksonville for more than 100 years – encourage us and inspire us. We dedicate our Large Corporate award to their tireless good work.
Congratulations to our project team members on this award: Lori Avampato, project designer, and team members Valerie Backmann, Jack Braxtan and Leigh Gunn.
Our team loves corporate office projects: Many of us spend the majority of our waking hours in offices, sometimes working under the stress of some serious deadlines. It's important to create a space that is energizing, low-stress and engaging. Want us to take a look at your office project? Let's talk.
You might have noticed some changes popping up around our website — we’ve been so busy working for the last 10 (10!) years that we rarely look up long enough to update the digital world on our work.
We’re excited about all the work we have to share:
We’re excited to add new architecture and interior design team members, and to show you what’s on the boards right now, too.
If you haven’t Liked us on Facebook or followed us on Instagram, we’d love for you to check us out — we’re sharing some of Group 4’s latest work in architecture and interior design.
We’re especially excited at the creative energy revitalizing Jacksonville’s Urban Core. Downtown Jacksonville was part of the story from our earliest days. Relationships are essential to Group 4’s fresh approach to architecture — and relationships are energizing Jacksonville’s creative community. We remain committed to our community and affordable housing.
Architecture and interior design shape every single moment of our lives. Both hold strong power over our health and our emotions. Our experience in the last decade — from a recession to Irma — shaped us, too. We’re excited to create spaces that bring communities together.
We’re excited to talk to you about it. Stay tuned!

The good news just keeps rolling in: The Jacksonville Daily Record featured our recent project for our friends at Smith Hulsey & Busey.
Smith Hulsey & Busey has an impressive tradition — they’ve been part of our community for more than 100 years and have called their office at One Enterprise Center for more than 30 years.
For their move to the Wells Fargo Center, the team wanted to help the law firm attract and retain top young legal talent. They also wanted to foster personal creativity and collaboration.

Award winning project.... 5 Thousand Town .... recipient of the 2015 IIDA North Florida Interior Design Award in the Residential category.
The Marina San Pablo Yacht Club, recently renovated by Group 4 Design, now houses the Sales Gallery for Aphora at Marina San Pablo, a new luxury condominium tower near the current Marina San Pablo residence. Our design team preserved the beautiful views of the marina while creating an unobtrusive sales gallery within the club for Aphora. The residents of Marina San Pablo continue to use the clubhouse for community functions and private parties, while Aphora welcomes future residents who are ready to upgrade their lifestyle to the Aphora way of living. By creating subtle changes to the interior finishes and changing the furniture to a more coastal and transitional style, the designers were able to create spaces aligned with the design direction for Aphora at Marina San Pablo.
Aphora will be an ultra-luxury condominium near J. Turner Butler Boulevard and San Pablo Road on the Intracoastal Waterway in Jacksonville, Fla. Sales are underway for the 57 residences and the building, homes and amenity spaces are being designed by Group 4 Design’s architecture and interior design team. Visit Aphora’s website at www.aphoracondos.com or call 904-515-5099 for a preview of the project or to arrange a visit to the newly renovated Aphora Sales Gallery.
Group 4 is super excited to see "Spyglass" moving along. Spyglass will be an apartment project in Baymeadows that will feature a new modern style not present elsewhere in the vicinity.
G4 recently started the design process for a new multi-story/high-end residential project that will be built near the intracoastal in Jacksonville! Here are some of our designers preparing for a presentation
