Situated in upstate New York amidst a frosty backdrop sit the Geometric Twin Houses, designed by the architects at WOJR. The two houses face each other and are constructed from various shapes – including a hexagon and a polygon – while both are built using the same five structural elements. The dark exterior of the design lends itself to a monochromatic contrast against the snowy landscape that sets in over the winter months.

The interior seeks to create comfort though keeping minimalistic stylings that fuse with the serenity of nature. While getting out of the cold and cozying up inside, the large windows that almost cover the entire home let you take in the the forest-filled surroundings protected.
