Barry’s family roots in Shreveport, Louisiana date back to the 1820’s. As a result Barry has reverence for traditional architecture and the value of preserving quality design.
He enjoys the element of surprise and working with our clients to design a home they never imagined, while encompassing all of the qualities of their dream home. Barry aims to create 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. 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 while remaining true to the historic aesthetics of a building. He also loves preserving history in his designs by using reclaimed materials.
Scott Payne’s architectural style and commitment to quality drew Barry to Farmer Payne Architects. He enjoys pushing boundaries and working with a team of builders and designers to build homes that are truly inspired.
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.
Recently married, Barry is continuing to grow deeper roots in Shreveport, with his wife Ansley. He enjoys hunting, spending time with his family, and promoting tradition while savoring an Old Fashion after the work week is over.
