Our Dual Roles: Inspired Design, Meticulous Preservation
IS Architecture pursues two passions: creating beautiful, enduring homes in any style, and preserving historic structures. Our award-winning studio comfortably spans both worlds, offering inspired, timeless solutions whether clients are building anew or preserving the past.
ABOUT: IS Architecture is a highly qualified award-winning firm dedicated to creating extraordinary homes and preserving our architectural heritage. Led by Architect Ione R. Stiegler, FAIA, our firm specializes in custom residential design with a unique expertise in historic restoration and the adaptive re-use of rare buildings. Our work encompasses all aspects of design, including aesthetics, building codes, and agency review, with solutions for technical, structural, and coastal challenges.
VALUES: At IS Architecture, we follow this guiding principle: the purpose of architecture is to create buildings that are beautiful, enduring, and comfortable. We believe a home should be tailored to its owner as well as the setting, merging function and form. Scale and proportion are critical—both in the relation of the rooms to each other and the house to its environment. Our firm creates extraordinary, livable spaces that reflect each client’s unique preferences while maximizing the potential of the site or an existing structure.
