Modern Bird-Inspired House Takes Flight in Southern California

The New York Times reported on a unique house design with the grace of a bird and the innovation of a modern mind. Forward-thinking architect Tom Kundig, of Seattle-based firm Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen, brings a beautiful sense of motion to this awesome residential design, set in the Southern California landscape with a view of the ocean. An aerial perspective of this home reveals a bird-like silhouette, with the upswept wings of the roof inclined for flight, and a 100-ft. long passage leading to the front door concealed beneath the bird’s tail – the home’s roof. Kundig wanted the home to resemble “a small building that landed lightly on the landscape,” according to The Times. Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen
