    This latest IMAGES title showcases nine exquisite residential projects by master architect William Hefner, whose Los Angeles-based architectural firm has been designing residential, commercial and retail properties for nearly two decades.

They are each marked also by Hefners appreciation of the craft of building and the use of natural materials. Opulent and richly detailed, the interiors nevertheless retain a sense of intimacy, warmth and comfort. Hefners houses are luxurious, but it is a personal, liveable form of luxury that embraces rather than distances. 

    Featured in this lavishly illustrated and detailed monograph are some of Hefners most spectacular creations, including a classic Beverly Hills estate and a Cliffside retreat overlooking the Pacific. Sleek and stylish or grandly traditional, each William Hefner designed house reflects the architects uncompromising pursuit of design excellence.
