Traditional House Styles for Modern Living

February 13, 2011, 1:00 PM

How does a 21st century residential architect who admires and respects (and lives in) the domestic style of a century ago reconcile those traditional design themes with the modern desire for big windows, sleek design, a family room and a wall for the flat screen TV?

John Ike, a noted architect and Maplewood resident whose New York-based firm, Ike Kligerman and Barkley Architects, has made the list of Architectural Digest’s top 100 many times over the last decade, will provide some insight into those modern-day challenges at the Durand-Hedden House on Sunday, February 13. Mr. Ike’s slide talk will take place at 2:00 p.m., followed by a book signing of his firm’s lavishly illustrated new book, Houses, which will be available for sale.

In addition, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. the popular exhibit The Woman’s Club of Maplewood: A Century of Service to Country and Community will be on view for its last public showing and the Country Store open for Valentine’s Day gift shopping.
