The New Shingled House: Ike Kligerman Barkley

The architectural style of the classic American summer, the shingled house can suggest the beach, the countryside, the mountains, and even the city. AD100 architects Ike Kligerman Barkley, one of the most successful firms practicing in a traditional style today, presents 14 houses that celebrate the simple wood shingle’s infinite flexibility—ranging from richly historic to sculptural and experimental.
 
The New Shingled House includes examples throughout the fabled seaside resorts of New England—Martha’s Vineyard, Block Island, and the Hamptons—as well as houses in California’s Bay Area and Point Loma, on a pristine mountain lake in South Carolina, and a Scandinavian influenced family residence in Connecticut. All are characterized by a sense of graciousness and generosity that makes them unique spaces for the owners and enviable spaces for readers.

The versatility of the shingle style allows the designers to explore formal ideas and to respond to client preferences and taste. The houses thus achieve the architects’ fundamental goal: when their clients enter their new house for the first time, they should feel as though they have always lived there.
