Twins: Houses in Five Parts

William O’Brien Jr. designed this two hypermodern vacationhomes for two brothers and their families on one plot of land in upstate New York. The first house has a retangular shape and the second house has a hexagonal shape. The agricultural development of the land between the two houses separates them visually. Water dispersal stems from two pairs of “water channels” embedded in two walls in each house.  Leaf vegetables, berries, wheat and corn are braided together in order to provide each house immediate access to each food type.

There is a rubber roofing system that is used for the tops of the houses and dark, thick stucco that coats the sides and underbellies of the houses. Altogether it looks pretty amazing.
