Barry R. Shaw AIA is a third generation Santa Monica High School grad, who took the path of architecture to new heights. He has combined his design talents with his general contracting expertise, to create a successful Design-Build system for interior, addition and new ground up single family and multifamily residential projects.
He is an alumni of the second ranked school of architecture in the U.S., Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, as well as the first place recipient of the Los Angeles Business Council Beautification award competition, for single family residential projects. In addition, he has been a contributing writer to Professional Builder magazine regarding interior architectural design.
June B. of Santa Monica recently hired Mr. Shaw. She writes, “What people don’t see from the street is your design penchant for light, space, volume and flow. Not until someone has lived in a home over a period of months can they fairly appraise balance between form and function. Now in our new environment for six months, we can honestly say that balance is centric to the architecture”.
Barry Shaw is an astute team player, familiar with the successful processing of plans through the multiple building department requirements, as well as independent design review boards. All of his construction projects include full service on site observation, as your architect and is part of the design-build delivery package. As written by client Bert W., “You [Barry] surveyed our needs without our even knowing it during the meetings prior to drawing the plans, so that your first set of drawings was virtually perfect”.
All of Mr. Shaw’s design plans are value engineered and designed to blend into the neighborhood, while encompassing the unique characteristics of the client’s programmatic requirements.
