Laura Smiros is an Associate at Ike Kligerman Barkley. An accomplished designer, teacher, and architectural advocate, she has been practicing architecture in the New York region for over two decades. Before coming to Ike Kligerman Barkley, Laura was Principal of Smiros & Smiros, directing numerous complex and large scale projects which garnered an AIA Design Achievement Award as well as an Addison Mizner award from the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art. Her design sensibility is driven by technical prowess – including construction, structural engineering, and computer expertise - coupled with an abiding passion for the history of traditional architecture. She brings this to her work at IKB, where she has led high-profile commercial projects. In addition to her design work, Laura is also a dedicated educator. Earning her B. Arch from the New York Institute of Technology School of Architecture and Design, she is now an Adjunct Professor there, serving on the executive board of the FRIENDS Group and as chair of the scholarship committee. In addition, she is a member of the AIA and the American Society of Civil Engineers, International Code Council, and volunteers on the STEM Committee for the Girl Scouts of Nassau County. She calls the waterfront town of Oyster Bay, New York, home.
