Ike Kligerman Barkley is known for distinctive design rooted in tradition but modern in its sculptural forms, taught detailing, glass expanses, and often a touch of whimsy. Our architecture and interior departments work collectively or independently with outside partners.
We collaborate with our clients, craftsmen and colleagues to produce personalized living environments as well as the occasional public building that receives the same level of intimate detail. Since 1989, we’ve designed buildings across the country and around the world.
Our two offices in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area enable us to serve clients smoothly from coast to coast and beyond. In both locations, we realize our projects through traditional handicraft and cutting-edge processes. Structures are imagined in impressionistic watercolors and communicated through sketches; they are also digitally rendered and designed using the latest technologies, including our in-house 3D printer and Virtual Reality renderings . From these initial designs through construction, we focus on selecting the best materials. Enduring material integrity is a hallmark of our work.
We have been fortunate to receive numerous awards, including the AIA New York Chapter Award, the DDB Stars of Design Award, the ICAA Julia Morgan Award and the ICAA Stanford White Award, as well as participating in the AD100 since 1995. In 2010, the Monacelli Press published our first monograph, Ike Kligerman Barkley: Houses; our second book with the publisher, The New Shingled House, debuted October 2015.
