Twine, when sculpture meets architecture
Designer Antony Gibbon attempts to combine architecture and sculpture in Twine, a monumental building that dialogues with the landscape.
Twine is the latest project by architect and designer Antony Gibbon in which sculpture serves architecture and vice versa. It is a type of dwelling whose whole and external spaces are created by two huge parallel stone surfaces that, resting on the ground, twist on themselves. When these two strips of stone touch each other, they inevitably form covered spaces.
Two of them have been closed with glass: one designed for the living area, which houses a lounge area and a kitchen, the other used as a sleeping area with a bedroom and a bathroom.
The third, on the other hand, remains open and in the middle of the other two, and houses a circular seat recessed in the rock with a space in the middle designed for a bonfire.
Twine is an enormous inhabitable sculpture that, despite its monumental and solid appearance, does not ruin the landscape, years follows its forms.
