About Us

AWARD-WINNING ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN EXCELLENCE SINCE 2000

Philosophy

We believe the practice of architecture is a great privilege and responsibility. It requires a keen understanding of people, place and context. By adhering to very high standards and best practices, we seek to create projects that affect positive change for our clients and, by extension, our communities.

Committed to the Vitruvian tenants of firmness, utility and delight, our buildings are designed to be inherently strong, function efficiently, and provide a visceral experience with style, and aesthetic appeal.

We visualize a synthesis of the built environment and nature. Changes to the global ecology have resulted in some social and economic challenges. We aim to be part of the solution that meets the demands for sustainable development.

Director, Bryan Bullen BA M Arch.

Grenadian architect, Bryan Bullen is the recipient of the prestigious 2022 Design Excellence Award instituted by the Commonwealth Association of Architects (CAA). The award recognises an architectural practice making the most outstanding contribution, having particular relevance to the country or region in which the architect or architectural practice operates.

As an innovative design leader, Bryan first studied fine art and industrial design at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) in Toronto Canada. He graduated as an honors student with several awards, before obtaining a Master of Architecture degree from the world-renowned Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-ARC).

Bryan worked in the office of Ellerbe Becket in Los Angeles, the office of the late Trinidadian architect, Roger Turton, and the Louisiana Museum in Denmark before returning to his homeland of Grenada. He has served as an external examiner at UTech Caribbean School of Architecture in Jamaica, designed the 2021 Grenada National Pavilion for the 17th international Venice Architectural Biennale and is in the process of authoring a 5-part monograph series entitled Between 2 Worlds, detailing his work over 25 years of practice in the Caribbean.

In 2000, he founded his award-winning firm, Caribbean Office of Co-operative Architecture (COCOA). His practice is known for the design of the iconic Grenada House of Parliament, along with numerous residential, commercial, and planning projects. COCOA’s clients include the Government of Grenada, St. George’s University, various financial institutions, and a wide range of developers and private homeowners.

Services

COCOA has amassed an expansive portfolio. Masterplan design of large-scale developments and buildings of various sizes and complexities comprise the full scope of the company’s work.
