Richard Manion Architecture
Over the past 15 years, Richard Manion has been designing luxury residences for some of the world's most prominent CEOs and captains of industry. Now, for the first time, Images Publishing unveils the stunning portfolio of elegant estates and villas designed by the highly regarded but low profile West Coast architect. From English country houses to Italian villas and French chateaux, this beautifully illustrated new book reveals why this Los Angeles firm is regarded as the pre-eminent practitioner of classical architecture for the 21st century.
Richard M. Manion has been called “the David Adler of Los Angeles” by one of Architectural Digest's Top 100 Designers. His meticulous attention to detail, in-depth knowledge of regional building styles, and mastery of all aspects of construction and renovation have made him the architect of choice for a select clientele as well as top interior designers, builders and landscape designers.
The firm's traditional residences draw on the regional architecture of England, France and Italy to reflect historical accuracy, authentic details, and a sophisticated sense of place that mesh with contemporary lifestyles. Projects range from Malibu to Beverly Hills and New York as well as China, Singapore, Indonesia and Mexico.
