Episode 075: Ike Kligerman Barkley
Ike Kligerman Barkley
John Ike, as a partner, has been practicing architecture and design in New York City for over three decades. John travels widely, and his design aesthetic is influenced by the built legacy and regional inflections he sees on these trips, particularly the Italian and Scandinavian precedents. Before co-founding Ike Kligerman Barkley, John worked for Robert A.M. Stern, under whom he had studied for his Master of Architecture degree at the Graduate School of Architecture at Columbia University. John received his Bachelor of Arts in biochemistry from Colorado College. He also has a particular interest in interior design, and has collaborated on the glass furniture line Chroma D with photographer Irene Mamiye. John is a father of three, as well as an avid hunter and fisherman. In his spare time, he works on his mid-century modern residences in New Jersey and San Diego.
Mia Jung is the Director of Interiors at Ike Kligerman Barkley. Her work is marked by its transcendence of traditional versus modern style, and by a balance of artistic expression and functionality. A calming sense of color is woven into the diverse collection of Mia’s projects, from getaways in Cabo San Lucas to office spaces in Aspen, and from traditional beach cottages in Nantucket to sleek high rise apartments in Miami. Mia received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts and worked at Victoria Hagan Interiors before joining Ike Kligerman Barkley. Interested in classical literature, weaving, and jewelry design, Mia’s appreciation of the handcrafted extends home, where she enjoys making paper and wood toys for her two sons.
