2014 AD100: Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects

by David Stewart

Back to the 2014 AD100 List

The esteemed firm led by principals John Ike, Thomas A. Kligerman, and Joel Barkley specializes in historically inspired houses noted for precise craftsmanship and distinctive silhouettes. Reflecting a scholarly reverence for design history, the practice—which has offices in New York and San Francisco—adapts vernacular styles from Massachusetts Colonial to Acoma Pueblo to Southern Antebellum to create residences with a 21st-century sense of light, space, and luxury. Ike Kligerman Barkley’s institutional portfolio includes the sustainably designed modernist Ramble Living Well Center in Asheville, North Carolina. As architect Robert A.M. Stern wrote in his foreword to the 2010 monograph Ike Kligerman Barkley: Houses (The Monacelli Press), the firm speaks “architectural languages of the past with a sure command of grammar and syntax and a rich vocabulary of form and detail.” ikbaom
