Nine recent projects by renowned architect John Ike

A signature shingled house in a New York suburb, a renovated mid-century modern house in San Diego, a glass-and-brick house near Seattle, a beach house on the Atlantic coast, a reimagined historic building in Brooklin, Maine—the projects featured in this book vary widely in style, location, and materials, but all share a common sensibility. For John Ike, partner at Ike Baker Velten and formerly a founding partner of the award-winning firm Ike Kligerman Barkley, they are all vehicles illustrating the myriad ways architecture is created. His involvement in them ranges from mentor to principal architect and designer, but all are collaborations, and in each chapter he focuses attention on a person who was particularly instrumental in realizing the project, whether the interior designer, the landscape architect, the contractor, a craftsperson, or the client. With an authoritative text by seasoned architecture and design writer Mitchell Owens and specially commissioned photography, John Ike: 9 Houses, 9 Stories explores and celebrates the inextricable bond between the architect and those who implement his vision, a give-and-take that results in singularly designed residences.
