Modern to Classic II: Residential Estates by Landry Design Group explores the Los Angeles firm’s recent work, defined by an eclectic range of references and styles. Emphasizing the unique stories that inform each of the projects, the monograph’s 15 chapters—each dedicated to a single completed residence and opening with a conceptual sketch by principal Richard Landry—demystify the process behind creating the grand estates the firm has become known for. From a modern steel and glass aerie perched above L.A.’s Sunset Boulevard to a lakeside stone villa in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, the houses selected embody the spirit of those who inhabit them. A special section, Works in Progress, previews 25 current projects from the firm consistently sought for its ability to collaboratively intuit architectural styles, siting and materials in structures that innovatively reflect the area vernacular and elevate the imagination of their clients, who include celebrities, creatives, and industry leaders.

Founded by architect Richard Landry in 1987, Landry Design Group (LDG) has evolved into a multicultural organization of 45 respected professionals whose creative expertise results in extraordinary living environments. Landry is committed to a team-based approach and LDG reflects a culture of collaboration that clients, who are inherently part of the design process, appreciate.
