The GLA Team: Lori Jimenez

Lori Jimenez, Architectural Associate

Jump onboard with Barndominiums! GLA fresh talent Lori Jimenez brings a West Coast urban vibe to her work, including this fun architectural trend. The go-to for rustic design, Lori offers a new perspective across designs including barndominiums where clients want a barn/storage space below (or connected horizontally to) their living space. Driven by its structural shape and barn features, rustic barndominiums can help reduce one’s expenses and footprint while maximizing space. From classic white and black to stone and exposed beams, this trend adapts to a range of tastes and budgets.

Lori is currently focused on a spectacular farm sanctuary featuring an animal rescue barn, a winery, a B&B, a dining greenhouse and more. The first organic winery in the United States, this endeavor is dear to both the client’s and Lori’s California wine country hearts. Barn-centered architecture is quickly taking root across agricultural New York regions rich in resources and natural beauty.

Daydreaming of sunshine and rustic beauty! Renderings shown here include a greenhouse that re-defines the farm to table food & wine experience. The winery design is complete with an outdoor private event space.

“I love how we are handling the existing exposed, hand sawn beam work in the late 1800s barn, breathing new life into it without disrespecting what is there.”

GLA architectural associates are jacks-of-all-trades, bringing safety and a new lease on life to restored structures and making the seemingly impossible—such as a garage without beams—possible. As the traditional commercial market evolves, GLA is leading the way in creative design.

Social, trendy, and fearless—she repelled off Kodak Tower—Lori is the right person to push these creative limits. Like GLA, she values uniqueness, incorporating each client’s tastes, lifestyle, and needs into their home or business design.
