Tim Barber


Growing up in an historic Ohio town, Tim was fascinated by the rich 18th and 19th-century architecture. With a Bachelor’s of Architecture from the University of Cincinnati, Tim began working in urban reclamation, historic preservation and adaptive re-use. He also joined the first Earth Day celebration – and continues to advocate for sustainable design. Tim opened Tim Barber Architects in Los Angeles in 1994, focused on shaping the future of traditional, residential architecture.

A founder and former President of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art’s Southern California Chapter, Tim has also served on the National Board of the ICAA. He enthusiastically supports the Los Angeles Conservancy, TreePeople, and Habitat for Humanity. He is inspired by classical, traditional and vernacular architecture, traveling the world to understand it through drawing and painting.
