Committee Meeting

Join the Small Firms Roundtable for a conversation with Barbara Bestor, FAIA, founding principal of Bestor Architecture in Los Angeles. This conversation will continue our series titled “Beginnings,” which seeks to engage creative small firms throughout the country in a dialogue about how they came to be and what makes them tick. We will leverage these conversations to address many of the cyclical inquiries and interests of the SFR, from logistical to inspiring, providing insight into how these firms are thriving amidst the complexities of working in a small firm.

Bestor Architecture has designed a number of award-winning projects including headquarters for Beats by Dre and Snap, Blackbirds, a new small lot housing development in Echo Park, and a variety of experimental residences and commercial establishments. The varied, creative, and aesthetically progressive body of work expands the territory of architecture into atmospheric urbanism. Recent projects include the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, which creates a vibrant musical haven by inserting an internal urban village within the shell of a classic Hollywood warehouse, Ashes & Diamonds, a new winery and event center in Napa, and headquarters for multiple high tech firms.
