This book of dream homes in and around Beverly Hills, Santa Barbara and Malibu takes readers inside contemporary castles and chalets, modern and classical manors of 15,000 to 20,000 square feet, designed and built in collaboration with clients including Kenny G, Sugar Ray Leonard, Keyshawn Johnson, Eddie Murphy and Wayne Gretzky. Richard Landry writes of his firm's work, "In a world filled with dreams, it is exciting to create residential estates that are directly inspired by the unique vision of our clients." Whether it is a contemporary compound, a French chateau, an Italian villa, an English manor or a NeoClassical estate, each Landry project shows an exquisite attention to details and a keen understanding of the client's preferences and lifestyle. The firm's creativity within the influence of architectural precedents and its inventiveness within contemporary parameters show a unique aptitude that has attracted the attention of America's movers and shakers, and will be a great pleasure to armchair designers, builders and decorators. With a foreword by the acclaimed "New Yorker" architecture critic Paul Goldberger, an introduction by Michael Webb, an essay by Landry himself and over 450 color photographs and drawings that convey the unparalleled versatility and the inspired vision of the Landry Design Group, "Modern to Classic" is a show-stopper in the world of architectural monographs, welcoming the reader behind the gates of some of today's most lavish residential estates.
