Text description provided by the architects. The house is built after the great flood in Thailand since 2011-2012, along with the reason of shifting the member of family from 'single family' to 'extended family.' There are eight members of three generations - grandparent, two families of parent, and grandchild. The project name of 'Twin House' comes from the twin daughter of the 2nd generation.

The 400 sqm. land is divided to be 2 pieces of land for two families - two houses. The design program of both houses is similar, which is 3 bedrooms, 4 restrooms, 2 living rooms, kitchen, and dinning area, basically. By the reason of limitation of land along with a lot of programs to accommodate eight members. Sharing space is a good solution in this project to be completed all facilities - 5 cars parking and service area. Eventually, the design program is consisted of two houses and sharing space.

By conversation with the owner of two houses; even in the similar design program, we have found the different attitude of using space in the terms of public and privacy space, between inside and outside space. We summarize design direction of this project - 'similar physical body, different thresholds.' Meanwhile, sharing space is the area of making the connection of both houses.

These two house is different degree of privacy. We really concentrate how and where to make the opening void and wall, in order to maintain personal privacy and the place for the whole family meeting. It is important in our thought of how designing a house for a big family.

Two storey house make the relationship between inside and outside space, trying the blur the wall or boundary connected to its surrounding. The living area is mixed and connected inside program and outside sharing space. Meanwhile, three storey house is on the privacy mode - inside program connection, mainly. The pocket garden in the back transfers space between house and sharing space, garden in the middle. The terrace on the rooftop defines visual privacy of outdoor space, making connection only ground and the sky.
