“The Brain” room by architect Tom Kundig

I’ve just spent the last hour researching a photo that I’ve seen pop up on Pinterest for a few years now. This is no ordinary room…this is a DREAM room, a room with floor to ceiling windows, a grand piano, shelves of books and…a SWING.  I SO love this room and I finally discovered the genius that designed it and the lucky person that gets to hang out in this magical space.A Bolt of Blue - The Brain by Architect Tom Kundig

The lucky guy is Seattle filmmaker David Wild. He needed a space to let his creativity flow, so in 2001 he enlisted the help of architect Tom Kundig (also a Seattleite). The two collaborated and the end result, was aptly called “The Brain”.
