Our Work.


Commercial work

The environment in which people work has proven to affect their productivity and performance on the job. Just as bright dispositions can reflect and create an enthusiastic workplace, so can something as simple as the amount and quality of light in the room. when carefully planned and incorporated with other energy-efficient measures, natural daylighting will result in a high-performance building.

    Grandveiw Condominiums

    We at Barley|Pfeiffer Architecture apply the idea of natural "daylighting" to every project we design to make for the best use of natural lighting within the office or classroom. This is a simple concept that, when carefully planned and incorporated with other energy-efficient measures, will result in a well conceived, successful, and enjoyable building.

  • Lost Pines Art Center and Sculpture Garden

    Lost Pines Art Center and Sculpture Garden

    The Lost Pines Art Center’s new facilities includes an impressive art gallery, community gathering space, offices, studios, foundry, hot glass shop, ceramics kiln, coffee shop, artists’ residences and gift shop.  The goal of this project was to revitalize the community spirit of a Texas town where a quarter of its residents had their homes devastated by wildfires.  Another primary goal was to create a central location for a vibrant and growing arts community. The site had been the home to the historic local icon known as the Powell Cotton Seed Mill and Silos, built in the early 1900‘s.  The old building’s structure became the inspiration for the new design.  The existing silos will soon be re-purposed and are a legacy to the original structures.  Extensive and careful use of natural “day lighting” was incorporated into the design to maximize appropriate glare-free lighting while minimizing unwanted solar heat gain; while the use of our Barley Pfeiffer "shading umbrella" proprietary metal roof and siding consists of high-recycled content steel that is used to create a heat-avoiding ventilated radiation barrier system.
