Strong Artistic Design

The designer was able to bring the strong, simple lines of this house back using a variety of textures and materials including cedar trim, cultured stone and a stainless-steel sculpture.

Bill Leffler’s house was a mix of arts and crafts and Mediterranean influences. He decided to give it a single personality with a groovy style update straight of the 1960s. It was obvious that this task was going to take a lot of hard work.

Bill called in the cavalry in the form of designer and longtime friend Mike Weber.
