In 2012, he was inducted into Interior Design magazines Hall of Fame.

Kundig’s work has received over 50 awards from the American Institute of Architects, including ten National Design Awards, seven National Honor Awards and seven National Housing Awards. His work has appeared in hundreds of publications worldwide such as The New York Times, The Telegraph, Architectural Record, Financial Times, Architectural Digest and The Wall Street Journal, and many books including House, the recently-released volume by Diane Keaton. He is named in The Wallpaper* 150 as a key individual who has influenced, inspired and improved the way we live, work and travel. Kundig is the author of two monographs featuring the work of his firm, Tom Kundig Houses and Tom Kundig Houses 2.
