At Ike Kligerman Barkley, the main purpose is that architecture and interior departments work throughout history and across styles, always seeking to enhance life through good design.
The company collaborates with their clients, craftsmen and colleagues to produce personalized living environments as well as the occasional high-profile public building. In the 25 years, designing buildings across the country and around the world: a Georgian townhouse in the River Oaks neighborhood of Houston; a mountain lodge in Aspen; a loft in a repurposed butter factory in Manhattan; a vernacular white villa in Cabo San Lucas; a Romanesque building on Stanford’s campus; and a rambling, weathered shingle house in Martha’s Vineyard.
Today DecoNY selected Top 5 projects developed by this amazing firm.
Let´s take a look:
Nantucket Beach House
This Nantucket beach house maintains the integrity of the region’s shingle style architecture while providing a young family with a fresh space that evokes the relaxation of a summer retreat. The balance of modern and traditional design elements creates a harmonious backdrop for an expert mix of artisan woodwork and cozy upholstery throughout.
Park Ave Apartment
Nestled on the Upper East Side, this apartment is both comfortable and elegant. A soft turquoise Venetian plaster envelops the walls, reflective of the dynamic personalities of the clients.
Capping a hill with views of distant Long Island and the Sound, this pyramid house in Fairfield County, Connecticut, was renovated to erase the aging, brown vestiges of the 1979 original. A new arm stretches to the east, housing the master bedroom suite and family room on the lower pool level. A sustainable project, this house integrates geothermal heating and cooling systems, renewable materials like bamboo floors and eco-friendly paints and finishes.
Villa on the Atlantic
This Palladian-inspired H-shaped floor plan is anchored by a large room spanning the center of the house with a 16 foot ceiling constructed from hewn wood beams. A modern stainless steel and glass curtain wall separates the room from the adjacent loggias overlooking the front and ocean sides of the villa. Bedrooms and more private living rooms occupy the wings.
This private house in Brooklyn accommodates the lifestyle of a large family without losing the elegance of its French Forties inspiration. The double height entry hall with a curved staircase anchors the living spaces on the first and second floors. The salon-like living room opens to the dining room – an easy transition for entertaining.
