Binary Symmetry and Geometry

A twin bungalow with minimum sharing spaces in one squarish plot was the basic brief. Thus conceived was the idea of a single whole cube form from the exterior which is cut diagonally to give two symmetrical individual houses from inside, with only a square courtyard in the center as the common point of transition. The geometry of the form was designed strategically to obscure the angularity and conscious cut outs in form provide varying volumes of spaces.
