The promotion of the arts and culture is one of the essential components of SPG’s DNA. Driven by the founding family, we have always stood out for our understanding of civic spirit, which includes the duty to contribute to local artistic and cultural life, the training of apprentices, the promotion of sports and leisure activities, and the beautification of our cities.


As a training company, we proudly hold the top spot for apprentice training in the real estate sector in Geneva, with six apprentices per year.

Participation in international competitions for architecture or landscape design is a constant in our commitment to harmonious and high-quality urban development. For example, the contemporary garden located on Avenue de l'Amandolier in Geneva, initiated by Thierry Barbier-Mueller, was one of the three finalists for the European Garden Award in 2013.


Founded in 1977 by Jean Paul Barbier-Mueller, the Barbier-Mueller Museum houses the world's largest private collection of primitive art. Several times a year, we organize guided tours there for our clients and employees.


Launched in 2014 at the initiative of Thierry Barbier-Mueller, the SPG Literary Prize for the first Romand novel has awarded, each year from 2014 to 2023, the first work of fiction by a Romand author written in French and published by a Swiss publishing house. Starting in 2024, SPG's support for literature takes on new horizons with the launch of the SPG Prize for Literary Creation, aimed at supporting another emerging field, that of students, by rewarding mature works dedicated to writing. This Prize is awarded each year to the three best fiction texts and comes with a prize of CHF 700; a way to propel budding young authors towards writing and to reveal new talents.
