Barry Holton’s family roots in Shreveport, Louisiana, go back to the 1820s. The Shreveport-native earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology at Louisiana Tech in 2013 and a master’s degree in architecture at Louisiana State University in 2017.
He designed the renovation plans for his family home while he was still in school. He also won an honorable mention in Designing Resilience in Asia, a global competition.
After school, Barry wanted to design custom-homes in his home-state. He works out of Farmer Payne’s Shreveport office.
Barry is drawn to traditional colonial style homes, custom-created to fit the landscape. He has a contemporary and progressive sense of style that he balances with remaining true to the historic aesthetics of a building. He also loves to use reclaimed materials in his designs.
Barry’s favorite part of the job is creating one-of-a-kind homes that reflect the personality and style of the owners. He finds it a privilege to collaborate with clients to bring a vision to life.
In addition to client-specific design, he considers the landscape. His site-specific design style creates homes that meld with the landscape.
When he’s not working he loves to hunt and watch LSU football.
