Studio William Hefner

(323) 931-1365

Business Description
William Hefner’s fascination with architecture, nurtured by international travel as a student that fully awakened his appreciation for art and detail, has led to the pursuit of his career. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History (including a year of study in Greece), he went on to receive his Master of Architecture degree from UCLA. Hefner then worked for Skidmore, Owings and Merrill before founding William Hefner Architecture Interiors and Landscape in 1989.

What distinguishes his diverse portfolio is an aesthetic sensibility that combines livability with a luxury of details and materials. The vision for projects is executed across the disciplines of architecture, interiors and landscaping. The firm’s work is elegant, expressing an appreciation of craft with an emphasis on natural materials.

His projects have been widely featured in numerous publications both national and international. In 2007 the Robb report named Hefner a member of the top 30 architects in the world for luxury residences.

What works for me is spending 10 to 15 minutes first thing in the morning (making the bed, lick and a promise with the feather duster, wiping around the base of the toilet with a piece of toilet paper); spending 20 to 30 minutes after taking the dog out for his morning walk to make a pitcher of iced tea, run the vacuum, polish any furniture that's losing its shine; another 20 to 25 minutes after lunch to straighten the kitchen and do a quick mop of the kitchen and bathroom (two or three times a week); and in the evening, cleaning the kitchen after dinner and taking care of anything else that needs done before I allow myself to sit down at the pc or in front of the tv.

That means about an hour at best, to less than two hours at worst, spent cleaning every day, which is doable for most of us. It was certainly doable for me even when I was feeling really tired and worn out during the worst periods of my fight against cancer. During periods of being nauseated (like now as I type this) I find having a clean home to be therapeutic. I can't relax (or heal) in the middle of a mess.

The reason it works is because I pick up after myself throughout the day. Keeping my home neat and clean is a lot easier than letting things pile up and then having to spend time cleaning up the clutter. I've never liked doing laundry, but I do it twice a week just to get it out of the way. And now it's time to take the dog out for another walk and then my reward, sitting down at 9 pm to watch "Inspector Morse".

I am not sure who made the dining table - it may have been custom made.
