Owner | bwm Architekten
Erich Bernard (born in 1965 in Graz) is the visionary behind BWM architecture firm. As an author of architecture-
related books and cultural and historical studies, e.g. on the topic of the summer residences in the Salzkammergut
region, his highly knowledgeable texts reflect his manifold interests.
One of his key competencies is the creation of exclusive interior designs – for instance, for John Harris fitness centre, A.E. Köchert jewellers,
Manner, and Hotel Vivamayr in Altaussee. As one of the three eponymous company founders, he was
actively involved in all stages in the firm’s development, most recently in the establishment of bwmretail.
In addition to his many engagements as a speaker, he was also a visiting lecturer for the Interior Design & 3D
Design degree course at the New Design University St. Pölten (NDU) in 2013 and 2015.
