747 Wing House

David Hertz

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Hertz says the idea of using a 747 came from the fact that each wing covers about 2,500 square feet. In early studies he positioned various wings on a model of the site, with the intent of maximizing views and reducing the structure needed to support the wings.As realized, the wings step down the terrain to allow views from one level over the lower level. This also has the effect of giving visibility to the wings and creating in-between spaces, such as the one pictured here, where Rehwald can feel like she's in flight.

I love the picture. Evokes the idea of flying at cruising altitude watching the sunset over the Rockies.
