Double-Header House
by D’arcy Jones Architects

D'arcy Jones Architecture

Double-Header House is shaped like an hourglass in plan to accommodate outdoor spaces.

Compared to a metallic flower, the home opens up to the front and back yards.

The hourglass-shaped plan provides private outdoor spaces for both dwellings, while two steeply-sloped metal overhangs create friendly spots to hide from the rain and provide shade during the summer.

This project has been longlisted in the urban house category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
