Inspired design that matters. Something special happens each time you enter the space. It stirs the senses. It resonates. That is what we do here at BAR Architects. We create places that inspire and that stand the test of time while meeting each of our client's specific needs in unique ways. As a firm, we've been honing our skills for more than 40 years. We're undeniably proud of BAR’s reputation for excellence. We've earned our expertise. Yet, in many ways, we still possess the zeal of an upstart, driven to stretch and push ourselves on every project. Our studio environment combined with our large firm resources fosters collaboration and encourages creative thinking. The design of a custom home is a highly specialized and personalized aspect of architecture practice. The Custom Homes Studio at BAR—a much smaller and intimate group of architects and design professionals within the context of the larger firm—operates exclusively to fulfill the aspirations of the private home client. While taking advantage of all the resources the larger firm has to offer, the Custom Homes Studio’s size and specialization focuses the talents and personalized attention required for a private home client.

Dynamic Architectural Windows & Doors
Dynamic has completed numerous projects with BAR Architects over the last decade or so from luxury residential to hospitality to wineries. BAR are a firm that excel in all genres of architecture and have the depth of personnel to create the right team for each project. We have found them to be concise, creative, flexible where required and very innovative. They are a pleasure to do business with and we recommend them highly. Martin Ross Director of Sales I West
I've dealt with this principle architect, Richard Beard on many projects. He is the best sort of professional-sensitive to my taste & budget while inspiring nuanced creativity to the design.
