For over five decades Cooper Gardner has been sought after to create elegant building and space design solutions across the spectrum in Bermuda’s built environment and, periodically, internationally.

Design leads to discovery

We believe every space is a starting point for what’s to come. All the interactions, ideas and life that will take place there.

Because good architecture goes way beyond form. It brings people together, opens up conversations and creates unique experiences. This has been our mission for the last 50 years. We see the potential of everything we do. It keeps us thinking in unconventional ways.

And it feeds our curiosity. What’s possible? What’s relevant?

What if?

Let’s rethink. Let’s work together. Let’s make great use of space.
