Philosophically, Marina Village is using the best of yesterday and today to plan a community that offers a proud heritage for tomorrow. Marina Village is evolving much the same way traditional coastal towns evolved, with a diversity of architecture that blends into an overall theme, giving the community a feeling of time and place.
Since before the turn of the 20th century, from New England to the Carolinas, classic Coastal architecture has captured the hearts of Americans. Seaside homes and cottages from Kennebunkport and Hyannis Port to Hilton Head and Kiawah Island have long been cherished as peaceful nautical retreats, far from the urban sprawl of the big city.
A similar architectural character, drawing from different influences, evolved along the Gulf Coast. The shoreline along Florida's Panhandle and the Louisiana/Texas Coast down to Galveston Bay sets the tone for southern-style coastal living with its rich French and Acadian influence mixed with the simple Victorian flavor of the East Coast.
