Home on Wings

David Hertz Architects have created the 747 Wing House in Malibu, California. This home was built from a decommissioned Boeing 747. This curvilinear abode takes in a gorgeous view of the Malibu Mountains and the Pacific Ocean with its floating roof developed out of the planes wings and its large floor to ceiling windows.

David Hertz’s team of architects the Studio of Environmental Architects used the whole plane including the cockpit, the wings and the fuselage to build the guest area, a barn, a meditation pavilion, an art studio and of course the main house. The 747 Wing House is environmentally efficient with its radiant heating, high-performance heat mirror glazing, solar power and natural ventilation. This concept is truly a step towards the design world of excellence as it provides breathtaking views as if flying in a plane during a sunset.

Check out this other amazing idea of recycling plane parts and using it for unique and unusual architecture.
