Alarife (ah lah ree fay) – Old Spanish Moorish term used to describe a professional individual that specializes in both the design and building of architecture.
The architecture and building firm of ALARIFE pllc, led by Eugen Logan Wagner PhD AIA, and a team of artists and artisans, uses traditional trades, crafts and tools to restore existing historic buildings, designs and builds modern, sustainable hand crafted architecture. Many of the buildings use rammed earth, adobe, stone, and stucco instead of conventional-walled structures.

Focus on Green Building, including indoor air quality, & energy efficiency
Barley|Pfeiffer Architecture’s core strength is designing high performance buildings that are less expensive to operate & maintain, are healthier to be in, incorporate balanced lighting that reduce eye strain, and are comfortable to live and to work in.
We engage in a collaborative “Comprehensive Design” approach that involves us in all aspects of a project: from programming to master-planning, interior design, green building strategies analysis, mechanical systems design, lighting design and construction estimating and review.

landscape. We help bring its beauty to many people by integrating it with
