What the architect has to say
"Alpha and Beta may form one unified whole, but as is always the case with town houses, each of them is a bit different. In this case, the two houses, connected as they are by a shared courtyard, engage in playful interaction and communication. The irregular outlines of the two buildings dovetail as if they had been meant for each other since time immemorial. The bulk of the two buildings is situated within the vicinity so as to create a forecourt, further accentuated by the dynamic corner of Beta.
The architecture is composed based on the individual apartment as the basic unit, as if the apartments predetermined the structure of the two buildings. This structure, which is broken up and subdivided, growing organically from a common basis, ensures that the two houses are proportioned at a human scale. At the same time, it provides the inhabitants with ingenious shading and privacy."
