Tim Barber Ltd. is helmed by ICA&A Southern California Chapter Founder and former President, Tim Barber, R.A., A.I.A., LEED AP. Tim’s penchant for classical design stemmed from the historic 18th and 19th century architecture of his native Ohio, where he earned a Bachelor’s of Architecture from the University of Cincinnati and got his start in historic preservation and renovation. He continues to instill the classical tenets of strength, utility, and beauty into his West Hollywood firm, and enjoys travelling the world to draw, paint, and source new inspiration.
