Ike Kligerman Barkley
At Ike Kligerman Barkley, our architecture and interior departments work throughout history and across styles, always seeking to enhance life through good 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, the ICAA Julia Morgan Award and the ICAA Stanford White 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.

Morgante-Wilson Architects
At Morgante-Wilson Architects, we draw inspiration from listening to our clients. In fact, as we see it, listening is the first duty of design. 

We understand that when you engage our services, you take a leap of faith. You trust us to transform your aesthetic and personal viewpoints in a way that complements – and enhances – who you are, and how you want to live. It’s an opportunity we honor by prioritizing your needs and preferences over our own and by engaging you in an energetic, ongoing exchange of ideas. The result? A home that truly reflects your style, as well as your lifestyle.

Which is precisely the reason so many of our clients return to work with us again and again, reengaging us as their requirements and sensibilities change over time. As much as any industry design award, these lasting partnerships are a source of pride for us – and a truly meaningful sign that we’ve indeed succeeded in earning the trust of the clients we serve. 

As interpreters of so many unique client preferences, MWA works comfortably within a multitude of style conventions, from contemporary to classic, and everywhere in between. Our assortment of competencies is just as broad, spanning architecture, interior design, and custom furniture design.

Such breadth of service enables us to travel freely and easily between the worlds of new construction, renovation, and interiors. It also allows us to provide holistic solutions to our clients’ needs. After all, when a firm such as MWA has the capacity to contribute simultaneously to each layer of a project, from blueprints to surface finishes, the entire house, in the end, sings a uniquely unified harmony of proportion, texture, light, and beauty.
