Hans-Georg Tersling (7 December 1857 – 13 November 1920) was a Danish architect who lived and worked for most of his life on the French Riviera where he became one of the most significant and productive architects of the Belle Époque. His work mainly consisted of designing mondain hotels, villas and mansions for members of the French and European aristocracy and other elite who resided in the area.

His style was the Neoclassical Louis Seize style and he drew on inspiration from the Italian Renaissance.

Hans-Georg Tersling was born on a farm outside the small town of Karlebo north of Copenhagen, Denmark. His father died when he was three. He trained as a carpenter before attending the architecture school of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, receiving his diploma in 1879.

After his graduation, Tersling traveled to France where he was employed by Charles Garnier to work on the Monte Carlo Casino where he completed the Salle Schemitt. After this assignment he lived for a while in Paris before ultimately settling in Menton in the south of France.

At Cape Martin between Menton and Nice, he was commissioned by a consortium headed by the Mr White of Black & White whisky, to design the Grand Hotel. The hotel was an instant international success with the emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria staying at the hotel four times between 1896 and 1897.

Mr White also engaged Tersling to build three stately villas in the surroundings. The first of these, Villa Cyrnos, completed in 1892, was built for Eugénie de Montijo, the last Empress consort of the French. The second was for his own use and the third, Les Rochers, was for his close friend Mr Blake in 1908.
