Emerich Spitzer was born in Budapest in 1897. In 1919-25 he studied at the German Technical University in Brno, like many other architects of Jewish origin. After graduating he moved to Bratislava, where he set up the Konrad and Spitzer Design Studio along with Josef Konrad, and designed a number of villas and residences. The Bratislava Business Board building (the present-day Grémium Hotel), which he designed together with Josef Konrad, was erected in 1932. He designed entrepreneur Rudolf Menderle's first high-rise building in SNP square in Bratislava in 1933-34 in cooperation with architects Christian Ludwig and builder Augustin Danielis. Spitzer emigrated to Great Britain before World War II and died there in 1948.
