house of the week 105: Matryoshka

This small house in Maryland designed by architect David Jameson gets it's name from the series of spaces nestled one inside the other like a Matryoshka or Russian doll. At the core of the house is a meditation chamber suspended over the stairwell providing respite and a physical as well as spiritual centre to the house.

I love how this small house has the Core ontop instead of it running through the centre like "most" cores do...and its just that one the voluminous space aswell
