Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects

Posted on Tue, 20 Nov 2007 by KiM

The firm of Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects began in the late 60’s with Jim Olson, who based his designs on some simple ideas: “that buildings can serve as a bridge between nature, culture and people, and that inspiring surroundings have a positive effect on people’s lives.” And as you will see by the photos below, it is absolutely breathtaking how the interior blends with the exterior. I always dreamed of huge glass garage doors that I could open and suddenly be outside. *sigh*

Thanks drey for the heads-up! The grey Kim used is one of my new favourites. I’ll add it to the grey post below.

i thought the gargage-door type wall was clever, but that whole entire wall that just pivots at the center…that is beyond. in the horizontal position is forces you to follow its lines out across the water towards the mountain. incredible!

I love how the buildings address the site. They’re one with their surroundings. fabulous work.
