The subtle differences built in to the fa├žade of this twin house show that the two halves are intended for two unalike residents. Vertical grey wood siding covers the exterior of one, while black metal covers the other, whereas the identical black wood terraces visually connect the houses to one another. The interior of the latter features exposed load-bearing structures, and incorporates a masterfully restored set of furniture from the 1960s and 1970s. The interior of its twin is based on drawings by the building`s architect and complemented with classical design objects such as a Vitra dining table and chairs.
