Business Description
At Ike Kligerman Barkley, we combine things in new, inventive ways.

Our architecture and interior departments work throughout history and across styles, always seeking to enhance life through design. We collaborate with our clients, craftsmen and colleagues to produce personalized living environments as well as the occasional high profile public building. In our 25 years, we’ve designed 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.

Our two offices in New York City and San Francisco 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. 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, and the ICAA Julia Morgan Award, as well as participating in the AD100 since 1995. In 2010, the Monacelli Press published our first monograph, Ike Kligerman Barkley: Houses; we have recently embarked on our second book with the publisher, to be released in 2015.

I use this article to give other point of view, those who trapped in bad design circle. Professionals seems pat each other's back and sure that rules (or breaking them), concepts and guide lines are excellent and novice are eager to follow them, too. Here some pictures my husband took for me, later I checked and I didn't like them, nether our daughter. The prices between 500-700k, rare house cost less around here. Who thinks they are for poor people? Or who think they were not designed by architect? And who think there school for bad architect (for poor folks) and school for good architect (custom) for 10% of population? I believe they are universal professionals in first place, then they have different work places and experience.

I would add a ninth idea except it rarely happens: “They see how the design worked out and learn from it”. Steward Brand’s excellent book, How Buildings Learn, talks at length about how architects rarely if ever actually evaluate the use of a building once completed much to the chagrin of those that have to live and/or work in the buildings. Similar points in Michael Pollan’s also excellent book, A Place of My Own
