|Architect (DPLG), Ecole Des Beaux-Arts, Paris, France
ARC Associate Bernard Spoerry specializes in the planning and architecture of waterfront developments. Architect and town planner, he approaches business with a great vision and verve, a style that reflects the culmination of fifty years’ experience passed on from father to son.
1967 saw Bernard’s admission to the famed “Ecole des Beaux-Arts” in Paris, and following a brief tenure on international experience in Darwin, Brisbane, Nouméa and Tahiti, he qualified as an architect (DPLG) in 1977.
The breadth of Bernard‘s experience covers a multitude of challenging, unusual and original projects, from private houses in Kenya (where he was both architect and builder) to “Puerto Escondido”, a 6,500 hectares tourism development masterplan, in Baja California, Mexico.
In 1987, Bernard founded his own firm, Spoerry Architecture based in Paris. Over the last ten years he has had a significant involvement in the development of Singapore where he was responsible for the creation of the initial masterplans for the Southern Islands and Sentosa Cove in the Lion City.
Today, he is involved in significant projects in Japan, the UAE, Kuwait and most recently, the Al Marsa floating City at Amwaj Island in Bahrain.
Stunning marinas, breathtaking hotels and even a private marina and polo field for His Royal Highness, the Sultan of Brunei, all bear the Spoerry stamp of quality.
