Paul serves as GROTH’s Religious Studio Director and has over 25 years of experience exclusively with religious clients.
Architectural design with religious clients is about the people and the faith-based communities they serve.
A well-designed facility is the conduit to serve the ministries in a more personalized way. Founded by the son of a pastor, our firm has an intimate understanding of the religious sector and differentiated expertise to serve religious clients. We approach architectural design to deliver solutions that insightfully fulfill and exceed the needs of faith-based communities including liturgical excellence, ministry, community outreach, and social justice.
GROTH Design Group’s Religious Studio is led by Senior Liturgical Designer, Paul Barribeau. As a former pastor, and now a licensed architect and liturgical consultant, he sees religious architectural design through a unique lens. We know the needs of congregations and communities change over time as they minister to the ever-changing needs of our society. Our Religious Studio team works to understand the mission and vision of the church to design flexible spaces that support and enhance functionality and value for today and into the future. Our designs strive to seamlessly blend historic and traditional facilities with forward-thinking and renewed spaces that support the programming needs of the community, church and congregation.
