Pierre launched his career with four-year tenure at Moross & Partners Architects, Johannesburg, South Africa, as Project Architect for commercial and residential projects. By 1971, he moved to Paris-based property developers, Richard Ellis SA, where he was Project Leader and Site Coordinator for commercial buildings.

From 1976 to 1986, Pierre was based in Kuwait, as an Associate of AART International, another firm of Paris-based Architects, where he was Project Leader and Design Director. Since 1987 he has been Managing Director of Palm Architects, based in Nice, France, with responsibility for client liaison and contract management.

His substantial management experience and deep knowledge of architecture have honed his client liaison, concept design and project follow-up skills.

As co-founder of Palm Architects, Pierre gives the company a broad and multi-cultural approach to architecture. He has enriched its portfolio with a large number of high profile projects, from luxury villas on the French Riviera to hotels, office buildings and hospitals both in France and abroad.

An Associate of ARC International, Pierre and his team deliver a broad range of interior design disciplines to the highest international standards. Working in close collaboration with ARC’s architectural design team they contribute a unique understanding and insight to the interior aspects of projects. Through Palm architects, Pierre applies the resources, skills and talent necessary to implement projects to the highest standards across the Middle East and in Africa.
