The New Shingled House by Ike Kligerman Barkley features projects located throughout the fabled seaside resorts of New England – Martha’s Vineyard, Watch Hill, Block Island – and the Hamptons, as well as in California and the Carolinas. The fourteen houses presented here evoke the rich heritage of American architecture and achieve the architects’ stated goal: when their clients enter their new home for the first time, they feel as though they have always lived there.

Mid century modern meets the 21st Century: The New Shingled House: Ike Kligerman Barkley

“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.”

FUN FACTS: Shingle-style houses often use a single, large roof, such as a gambrel or hip roof. The houses thus emanate a more pronounced mass and a greater emphasis on horizontality. The New Shingled House by Ike, Kligerman, Barkley is published by The Monacelli Press.
