Originally from Tampa, founding principals Rick Barnett and Dave Fronczak of Rowe Holmes Barnett Architects, established Barnett Fronczak Architects in 1985 in Tallahassee, Florida as an extension of their original firm. In 2005, Doug Barlowe joined as a partner, establishing Barnett Fronczak Barlowe Architects. In the fall of 2015, BFB Architects welcomed Doug Shuler as the newest partner. The firm’s name was changed in 2017 to Barnett Fronczak Barlowe & Shuler Architects (BFBSA).

Our ethos is cultivating long-term client relationships. We have a genuine interest in each client’s unique goals, strengths, strategies and direction. We are honored to consistently have return clients who are so pleased with our results and with the positive experience they have working with us, that they continue to recommend our team for other projects. This is the best reward for great work.


Our success is measured by the trust our clients place in our abilities and we are sometimes awarded for these outstanding achievements. We are honored to represent the best in design of American architecture.

Rick Barnett and Dave Fronczak, 1980
