Ike Baker Velten [formerly Ike Kligerman Barkley- SF Bay Area] is known for distinctive design rooted in tradition but modern in its sculptural forms, taught detailing, glass expanses, and often a touch of whimsy. Our architecture and interior staff work collectively or independently with outside partners. We collaborate with our clients, craftspeople, and colleagues to produce personalized living environments as well as the occasional public building that receives the same level of intimate detailing. Our San Francisco Bay Area-based office serves clients smoothly from coast to coast and beyond. We realize our projects through traditional handicraft and cutting edge processes. Structures are imagined and communicated through impressionistic sketches and digital renders and are designed using the latest technologies. From initial designs through construction, we focus on selecting the best materials. Enduring material integrity is a hallmark of our work.
