Gallery: INHABITAT INTERVIEW: 8 Questions with Architect Tom Kundig

The Shadowboxx, San Juan Islands, Washington

    I don’t like the sideboard in that dining room that much… I would go with something more with the likes of D. Manuel from Boca do Lobo.

    Nevetheless the rest is awesomwe!

    I have a comment and question for the Architect. As a Masters student in Sustainable Design, I have studied high performance and sustainable structures. I noticed the support for the hut’s roof is an I-beam that goes directly through the living space. Why would such thermal bridging be included in a structure used in a heating dominated climate? This seems to be an oversight that would drastically reduce the performance and comfort of these huts.

    I really like this architect.

    He is the poetry of detail. Look at the openings of the mechanisms of Chicken Point Cabin.

    I’d like to work for him and with him
