Wing House, a House Made from 747 Plane Parts by David Hertz Architects

By • Jun 20, 2011 •  Selected Work 

Santa Monica-based studio David Hertz Architects has recently completed the Wing House project.

Located on a 55-acre property in the remote hills of Malibu, California, this contemporary residence is built from a decommissioned Boeing 747!

As its name suggests, the roof of the residence is made of the plane’s wings. According to the architect, “the main residence uses both of the main wings as well as the 2 stabilizers from the tail section as a roof for the Master Bedroom.

The Art Studio Building uses a 50-foot long section of the upper fuselage as a roof, while the remaining front portion of the fuselage and upper first class cabin deck is be used as the roof of the Guest House.”
