CODA Bespoke has made a pair of matching black homes in Sheffield, England, for graphic designer twins Nik and Jon Daughtry.
Sheffield-primarily based CODA Bespoke collaborated with the Daughtrys to develop the two neighbouring houses, known as Twin-develop, that share an aesthetic.
Situated on the web-site of an old corn mill, alongside the the millpond that utilized to drive it, the matching residences are each completed with black corrugated steel cladding.
On the other hand, to make sure the Twin-develop dwellings every single have their personal character, they are differentiated by their layouts and orientations.
“There was an value to develop residences that share the identical DNA, but that every single have unique personalities, like twins,” Nik Daughtry told Dezeen.
“The easy rotation of the primary physique of the buildings, so that Jon’s gable faced the pond and Nik’s did not, transformed the way the residences flow internally and gave every single dwelling its one of a kind really feel,” added CODA Bespoke.
Each homes in Twin-develop have 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, with the very first floors elevated on steel stilts. This aligns the living spaces with the top rated of millpond’s supporting wall, maximising views of the water.
Elevating the very first floors in this way also enabled the twins to develop a shared outside region for the households, which connects with the pond and is total with a wood-fire oven.
Twin-build’s smaller sized residence, owned by Jon Daughtry, appears out onto the millpond by means of a massive glazed gable finish with an inbuilt blockwork chimney.
It sits at the finish of the double-height and open-program living area on the very first floor, which methods down to an adjoining kitchen, 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is also access to mezzanine level above that hosts a study.
The very first floor overhangs the ground floor, which has a massive entrance hall and a additional two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Across the corridor there are a additional two bedrooms and a bathroom, though the second floor hosts the ensuite master bedroom.
Twin-build’s interiors adopt identical material palettes, dominated by the use of untreated steel, concrete and plywood.
They are fitted out with exposed copper plumbing and galvanised conduit, which finish at light fittings design and style by the twins as aspect of their design and style agency, DED, in collaboration with Tyson Studio.
“We utilized concrete blocks plywood and steel to nod to the site’s industrial heritage, but to also develop low upkeep residences,” Nik Daughtry added.
Each homes are also created to function sustainably, with a super insulated structure and power for underfloor heating and hot water systems acquired by means of hydropower from the millpond.
The project won the 2018 Northern Design and style Awards, which featured a shortlist which includes home developers Urban Splash, who are at present overseeing the renovation of the Sheffield’s iconic Park Hill estate.
