Barbara first discovered architecture at age 8 while “helping” her parents select a house plan from a plan book. At the same time, she discovered the harsh reality that architects must face: People don’t always follow your carefully considered design. She was highly offended when the completed house didn’t have the all-glass living room wall that was pictured in the book. After over 20 years with BSB Design she has learned that siting sometimes requires design sacrifices.
Barbara’s early introduction to architecture and design – in addition to learning to read blueprints with her carpenter husband – serves her well at BSB Design as she catalogs and acts as “head librarian” and researcher for plans and project imagery. She also maintains client information, assists with creation of marketing materials using her uncanny ability at playing “what’s wrong with this picture” to proofread and edit. Her historical knowledge of the firm and the body of work make her a go-to for background and research.
I have a t-shirt that says "I am not obsessive I am not obsessive I am not obsessive" (and on and on) however, my music and book collections - oh, and shoes - might suggest otherwise.
