Read all about it

Photographers and others worldwide were asked, “What would be your ideal working environment?” From this input we knew Studio Sitges needed the best architect. We found him. It was Tom Kundig.

Now his just published book “Houses 2” tells the story of a three years’ collaboration. It shows the outcome of the monumental planning and discussion that went into the creation of the purpose-built Studio and the House that goes with it.

Tom is actively redefining the grammar of architecture. For example you can see it in the House’s wood and iron staircases, the positioning of the pool, doors that open in different ways and the curved outside architectural line that goes all the way through the bathrooms of the suites.

The book and its pictures reveal why Seattle-based Tom Kundig continues his meteoric rise. Over the last five years he has gained a world-wide reputation for an innovative balance of raw materials with modernist design. Nowadays he collects numerous awards including the 2011 “World Architecture News House of the Year Award” for his design of The Pierre in Seattle and “Residential Architect’s Project of the Year award” for Art Stable in Washington State.

You can see the result in pictures from the book attached here.

So why go to such great lengths? It’s so that you can have the world’s finest Studio available to you.
