‘Move the Hut’ Lawsuit Filed Against Architect Tom Kundig for Building on an Untouched Ridgeline in Methow Valley, WA

We never would have expected Tom Kundig  to be embroiled in legal battle with a community of conservationists, but the characteristically eco-minded architect was slapped with a lawsuit a few weeks ago by residents of Methow Valley, WA. As it turns out, one of Kundig’s newest construction, dubbed the Flagg Mountain Hut (which he also co-owns), protrudes into the viewshed of a pristine ridge in the valley. Though the new home will feature many of the eco-friendly and site-sensitive elements we’ve seen in Kundig’s other designs , the community is not happy with the project and they’ve launched a campaign asking the owners to Move the Hut off the ridgeline and out of sight to preserve the beauty and character of the valley.
