Paradigm Architects was established as a professional partnership in the spring of 1993 by Timothy Barker and Louis Girdler. Having worked together several years at larger, specialized firms that provide almost an “assembly line” approach to service delivery, Tim and Lou set out to combine their design and technical expertise with the focus always on individualized service producing superior architecture. Many fine clients and challenging projects later, our focus is still to provide personal, hands-on service in pursuit of imagining, designing, detailing and producing high quality, enduring places.

With the retirement of Louis Girdler in 2009, Paradigm Architects was restructured as Paradigm Architects, LLC.

Paradigm Architects, LLC brings the same commitment to the art and practice of architecture and to each project the firm undertakes on behalf of its clients. Our objectives are to consistently make the most of every opportunity, regardless of scale or scope and to provide clients extraordinary, individualized attention and design.
