Geometric Twin Houses

Built in Upstate New York for a pair of brothers, these Geometric Twin Houses have different forms and even a different number of sides, yet are built from five identical geometric shapes. In house, they form a rectangular, almost square form, while in the other, they're assembled to form a hexagon. Both feature large, panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows, spartan interiors, and dark outer shells, and are linked together not only by proximity, but also via underground water pipes that allow the homes to share water gathered from their rooftops.
