Tom Kundig’s Rolling Huts was designed as a mountain retreat for a client in Mazama, Washington. This client owned a great expanse of land and had a vision of creating a series of private cabins to be enjoyed by his friends and family.
After being informed by the local planning department that permanent cabins would not be approved for the site, the architect hit upon the idea of placing the structures on wheels- effectively making them mobile homes.
I love this project because it challenges the thought that creativity happens best without limits. I’ve always believed that the best, most original ideas come not by escaping restrictions...but by adding them.
