Barbara Bestor is a Los Angeles based Architect who heads an office for progressive architecture.

Barbara's work is dedicated to the idea that ‘everyone should experience strange beauty everyday’, manifest in a wide range of projects from commercial spaces such as restaurants and stores for Intelligentsia Coffee, Trina Turk and Stussy: new experimental houses in Venice, Silverlake, Santa Barbara and New York City and a variety of non-profit installations including local schools, billboards, an art bouncy house, etc. Her office has been nationally and internationally published including recent pieces in the Los Angeles Times, Elle, Brutus, Domino, Angeleno and the 1st Dibs website.
