Outdoor Baptistry – Pinelake Reservoir Campus

Outdoor Baptistry – Pinelake Reservoir Campus

At Pinelake Church, the testimony of life change is told as a part of baptism.  The outdoor baptistry and viewing plaza are located at the crossroads between the Family Entrance,  Venue, and Courtyard.  It provides a relaxed atmosphere for those that prefer a unique baptism experience.  The faceted pool wall is constructed of white cast-in-place concrete and is accented with stacked stone and ribbed metal panels.  When not in use as a baptistry, a waterfall fountain adds interest and soothing sounds to the plaza.

The First, ANBA

The First, ANBA is located in a prominent part of Madison the City, just off of Highland Colony Parkway.  Set apart as a marquee branch location, the building’s exterior design is of a New Classical architectural style that exceeds the architectural design requirements of Madison.  Inside, the materials including wood, metal, glass, and glass tile reflect a transitional style and color is used to strengthen the branding of the bank.  The bank lobby is formed around a modern approach to banking customer service which uses pods in lieu of traditional teller lines.   The building is currently under construction and is expected to be complete by the start of 2020.

Canopy Children’s Solutions Center of Excellence

In September 2018, Canopy Children’s Solutions Center of Excellence was opened.  This Outpatient Center brings together three critical behavioral health entities: Children’s Psychiatric Solutions, Behavioral Health Clinic, and Early Intervention Autism Clinic.

The Autism Clinic encompasses a collaborative program that brings research and technology along with supported therapies. The Clinic features a sensory-friendly playroom that provides incentives and multi-sensory learning through a combination of texture, light, and sensory elements.

Finish selections were based on interior finish standards developed for Canopy in 2016.


John D. Williams Library, University of Mississippi

A new addition to the west of the original library recalls the traditional Neo-Classical architecture of the Ole Miss campus and contains a new entry, stacks, and reading rooms. The original library was renovated to allow it to function well into the future, including code improvements and repairs to the exterior walls and roof. The project was phased to allow continuous operation during construction.

CCD, in association with Eley Associates Architects, was responsible for the design, construction documents, interior design, and construction administration.



Pearl Street Office Building

The corner of Pearl and State Streets is one of the gateways into Jackson’s central business district. This project is designed to provide new class A office space and parking and add a welcoming presence to Jackson’s skyline. The building is designed with 8,900 SF of retail at the street level, wrapping 4 levels of parking. The office floors provide an efficient floor plate for tenants, with a total of 162,500 SF for office use.

Congressional Place

Canizaro Cawthon Davis worked with Duckworth Realty to redevelop a site adjacent to Jackson’s City Hall and Hind County’s Courthouse. These buildings form the edges of an urban square. Congressional Place provides class A office space and parking while reinforcing the existing urban environment. An efficient plan allows 5 levels of parking with 97,000 SF of class A office space above. The corners of the building which face the square are offset, which increases the number of prime offices. Retail space occupies the ground floor and gives life to the street. The architecture is influenced by the historic courthouse opposite the square, combining Art Moderne and contemporary motifs.


One Madison Plaza

This office building meets the strict architectural guidelines of Madison, MS, while maximizing rentable space with an efficient floor plan. Large windows enhance office layouts and provide views to the landscape.


Young Wells Williams P.A.

Relocating to a mixed use development gave Young Wells the opportunity to make a fresh impression and embrace change.  Their new offices incorporate the flavor of the traditional in a contemporary way.  Cherry paneling and millwork, and granite flooring mesh easily with wood slat acoustical ceilings, textured glass,  and sleek, energy efficient light fixtures.  Side lites at the offices, and obscure glass at the conference spaces provide borrowed light for the interior areas and allow occupants to experience outdoor views.  The furniture offers comfortable technology support and a relaxed feel.  In the open administrative work area both the systems furniture workstations and the ceiling utilize components of various heights to add interest and volume.


College Hill Missionary Baptist Church Additions

College Hill MB Church is a historic presence in west Jackson and is an anchor for the community. The church committed to remaining on their existing site, even though space was lacking. CCD worked with the church to add a new sanctuary and classroom addition, which meant removing the existing sanctuary. The architectural design fits within the traditional scale of the neighboring houses, with a bell tower accenting the street corner. The church’s existing stained glass windows are incorporated into the design. A welcome center at the front entrance opens up to the community with large windows.

Welcome Commons for New Vision Fellowship

CCD worked with New Vision Fellowship to create a welcoming space for church members, their families, and visitors to meet and share their faith in an informal setting. In the light-filled Welcome Commons, church members can engage with each other before and after a church service.  The Welcome Commons also provides an alternative to the existing Fellowship Hall for church functions.
