Ike Baker Velten (formerly Ike Kligerman Barkley, SF Bay Area) creates distinctive design that is rooted in traditional technique yet is modern in its application of sculptural forms, taut detailing, and glass expanses, and is underlaid with a process that is both rigorous and lighthearted.

Our architecture and interior staff can 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, where each project receives dedication to intimate detailing to highlight each project’s unique location and character.

We realize our projects through blending traditional handicraft with cutting-edge processes. Structures are imagined and communicated through impressionistic sketches and digital renders using the latest technologies. From initial designs through construction, we focus on selecting the best materials, ensuring that material integrity remains a hallmark of our work. Our San Francisco Bay Area–based office serves clients from coast to coast and beyond.
