Each of the twelve projects selected for the book reflects Liaigre’s deeply artistic style and traditional French influence. His work is painstakingly detailed, bringing careful attention to every last design element, from window positioning to door handle shapes.

Liaigre’s design aesthetic is overwhelmingly elegant and balanced, drawing inspiration from local traditions, and making use of classic and natural materials. Each of the book’s twelve projects is unique and customized to the client and location.
