A Principal at KPF, Bernard Chang has more than 25 years of architectural experience around the world. His portfolio encompasses a wide range of building types, from boutique row houses to large-scale urban developments. Overseeing the firm’s Hong Kong office, Bernard supports various projects, operations, and business development activities for KPF’s Asian practice.

Since joining the Hong Kong office in 2007, Bernard has managed the design and coordination process for some of the firm’s most ambitious projects throughout China, notably Ping An Finance Centre in Shenzhen and CTF Finance Center in Guangzhou, the second and third tallest buildings in China, respectively. Bernard applies his expertise in supertalls as vertical cities to multi-layered neighborhoods. He managed the Hong Kong office in the design of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Guangzhou campus, a world-class research and development mainland expansion for the academic institution.

Bernard’s projects emphasize mixed-use programming to better accommodate tenant needs, blending luxury with amenities. The serviced apartments and Rosewood Hotel at Victoria Dockside, a commercial development in Kowloon, are complemented by the K11 Musea, a cultural and retail center. Also in Kowloon, Baker Circle is a revitalization of a scale rare in the city, with nine towers and a vibrant public realm.

Bernard’s diverse architectural background contributes to his longstanding successes in the projects he undertakes. He is an active member of the Hong Kong architectural community and a visiting critic at the University of Hong Kong School of Architecture master’s program. Previously, Bernard also served as the Vice President of the AIA Hong Kong Chapter.
