Magnificent Mirror Image Abodes
These Twin Houses by William O'Brian Jr. Are Minimalist and Modern

By: Jana Pijak (Superstar) Apr 18, 12

These ‘Twin Houses’ by William O’Brian Jr. are dynamic holiday homes created by the award-winning American architect. These alluring abodes feature a minimalist and modern design aesthetic that is Scandinavian in appearance.

Though they are located in upstate New York, these hillside homes take one into a natural paradise far from any sign of urban life. Featuring black stucco facades, the geometric structures are each made up of a configuration of four trapezoids and one triangle shape.

The ‘Twin Houses’ by William O’Brien Jr. were created using complex geometries, and the mathematical principle of “dissection.” Shining a spotlight on sustainability, the architect’s creations feature water-collecting roof systems that distribute piping evenly between homes. In addition to hydro, the homes share an agricultural plot of land, allowing its inhabitants to cultivate wheat, corn, leaf vegetables and berries.
