Mexico-based architectural designer Antony Gibbon has proposed a sculpture-like house made of a twisted concrete structure aligned through the landscape.
Named Twine, the new structure is envisioned as a new residential typology that pushes the conventional boundaries of architecture. Made of a series of twisting spans of concrete, the house undoubtedly becomes a part of the landscape since it doesn't create a sense of feeling of a house from far away.
Large undulating surfaces continue throughout the landscape and create its own interior spatial quality in different sizes and variations. Each fluid part under this shell is designed for a different program of the house, including a sleeping space and a kitchen lounge.
The outer skin of the house is made of concrete where it sometimes divided into glazed surfaces to open up the structure to the landscape. The design offers a distinguished architectural language that mixes art and architecture in a fluid motion.
Embracing nature’s forms as a source of inspiration and pushing the boundaries of architectural design, Antony’s body of work has gained world-wide recognition.
Antony sees the environment as an important driving force behind his work, each structure is individually created to consider the surroundings using sustainable materials wherever possible.
He aims to create the connection between Nature & Nurture, seeking a path to merge one into the other. To combine each unique, bespoke structure and its individual habitat and to develop harmony, so they grow together.
