Founded in 1974, Ickovic & Bliss, Inc. (I&B) provides design services for individuals seeking a unique and personalized way to create their homes and businesses in the Hamptons.
Over the years I&B’s work has been published in House & Garden, Country Living, House Beautiful and Architectural Digest, and the principals have been profiled in Newsday and the East Hampton Star. The firm has provided complete design services, including oversight of construction for over 50 homes in the Hamptons.
W.T. Milia Construction began working with I&B in 1990,when the firm undertook a major renovation and expansion of an artist’s home and studio in Sagaponack, which they had designed and built 10 years earlier. A recent project included two additions and a comprehensive rehabilitation, enlarging the house into a gracious family complex.
W.T. Milia has been a member of the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce since 1994. The two companies formalized their working relationship in the early ‘90’s by establishing Ickovic & Bliss/Milia, their design/build partnership, now known as design + build/hamptons.
Today, design + build/hamptons is taking on a variety of projects in the Hamptons, including additions and renovations, as well as new construction of homes and commercial buildings. By focusing on a design aesthetic which grows out of the site and the use program, with an emphasis on listening to the clients’ needs, design + build/hamptons has been able to create a portfolio of handsome and successful buildings.
