Twins - Houses in five parts


Via : Designboom   - Pictures copyright : Peter Guthrie

Boston based practice William O’Brien jr. has designed 'twins: houses in five parts', two single family residences located in upstate New York, USA. Intended for two brothers, a pair of structures sharing similar geometric qualities are linked by a functional agricultural field. The internal volumes are the result of a study of the mathematical principle of 'dissection' in which polygons of equal areas may be divided into identical shapes. Two sets composed of four varied trapezoids and one triangle containing parallel programmatic functions are arranged into a square and hexagonal plan configuration.
