Do you realize how big a Boeing 747 is? Have you ever thought of how big a dump it would mean if a Boeing 747 is no longer suitable for flight? And while you are at that, think about the space that will be unusable when it is used for a Boeing 747 dumpster. How wasteful that is? How unfriendly it would be for the ecology? As the soil that on which the airplane is dumped can no longer bear to absorb water well enough, etc.
Now that you have got the idea into your head, here is a quite good solution. You can utilize the unused parts of the plane to build something useful and is actually needed. You can make something you can utilize from the plane waste. This is where I introduce you to the cutting edge residential building of Wing House in Malibu, California. David Hertz Architects studio based in Santa Monica is the creator of said house.
The guys at the studio had succeeded in building the house from a unit of decommissioned Boeing 747. The plane made for a 55 acre of property. And as you might have guessed from the name, the wings of the decommissioned plane are the showstoppers of this building. The wings are used as the roof of this residence. The architect explained that both two main wings and two stabilizers from the plane’s tail were used to build the main residence’s roof.
Not wanting to just make a house made of such unique materials and stop there, the whole house is also created with very cutting edge and modern touch. Glasses are used to help enhance sophisticated look. The place is both amazing at day and stunning at night. Check out our photo collection of the Wing House below to get inspired and see how great a dump can be if you just know how to use it.
