A house with two façades: The Masonry by stpmj Architecture
Architect: stpmj Architecture
Location: Gwanggyo (KR)
While the house does feature two separate living spaces, the architects’ commission stated that they should treat the structure as a unified form. The completed building reveals its inner arrangement in the unique façade: the two types of diagonally layered masonry bricks on the exterior walls reflect the building’s interior spatial distribution. Stairways inside form the spines of the two respective apartments and offer an interesting experience of each space; they also create visual connections between the storeys, which are at different heights.
