The Bookshelf: “The Shingled House” By Ike Kligerman BarkleyAuthor:Jennifer Mehditash
The magic trio behind the Architectural firm, Ike Kligerman Barkley, over the course of 25 years and across the globe, have designed personalized homes with a distinct subdued elegance. Praised with many professional awards, John Ike, Thomas Kligerman, and Joel Barkley present us with 14 homes highlighting “the enduring quality of the shingle style located throughout Martha’s Vineyard, Watch Hill, the Hamptons, the Carolinas, and California.”
With such a wide range of repertoire to cull from, one can only imagine how difficult it was to select the lucky ones to be shared with us in their second book: The Shingled House, out this month. Whether 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, this partnership makes use of their offices in both New York City and San Francisco to create these beautiful interiors shown in the book.
“The American romance with the shingle style has lasted nearly 150 years because it presents, in an understated way, the best of everything. For our firm, it is a spur to creativity, to unorthodox speculation, to finding new answers to old questions, and to opening one’s mind and imagination as well as one’s eyes.
the love of shingle is undeniably a strong unifying force. The New Shingled House, by The Monacelli Press, is out now. Make sure to grab yourself a copy HERE, and let your imagination for that new dream home run wild.
