Plane House

It's a sweet space designed and laid out in the hills of Malibu. This is the result of such a cool collaboration between architect and owner. The idea of utilizing recycled materials (a Boeing 747-200 aircraft) and incorporating natural topography. I'm always intrigued when I see those two elements coming together. Definitely not your typical refurbished/reconstruction job but a genius little idea. The retired plane was sitting with a ton of others in the California dessert. Love the creativity.

A mix of concrete, structured steel and glass makes up both the interior and exterior.

They ended up purchasing the entire plane however it's the wings that are the linchpin to the design.

Check the view at dusk. The lines are so strong from this angle. And the fire pit is perfect. They designed it utilizing one of the engine cowlings.
