It took Richard Landry and interior designer James Magni almost a decade to complete this 24,000-square-foot villa in Los Angeles. "It was a real collaboration," says Landry of the partnership. "We share the same ethics when it comes to modern homes."

Homes by Richard Landry are lofty yet grounded in humility. For the Los Angeles–based architect, creating residences that are grand but also highly personal to their owners means forgoing a signature style. "I come into each project without an agenda or a preconceived notion," Landry explains. "Clients are welcoming me into their world. A great compliment is when they move into the house and say, ‘I feel like I have always lived here.’ That is so perfect for me." And perfection Landry-style starts with introspection. "I encourage clients to do some soul-searching," he says. "Trends are not relevant. A home will be here for a long time. It is about something more substantial. It is about how you want to feel when you come home. There is no right and wrong."

Landry brings this mind-set (and the expertise of his 50-person staff) to each project, be it a château-inspired estate in Asia or a contemporary compound in Southern California. In discussing his process with Robb Report Home & Style, he revealed his passion for making each grand house a home.
