Jameson House Modeled After Russian Nesting Dolls

Contemporist has profiled one of David Jameson's local contemporary creations with some great photos. He is the same architect behind the house that looks like a Tetris game we mentioned a few months ago. The house above, called Matryoshka, isn't on the market but is still nice to look at. The building concept consists of a series of nested rooms all leading to the core 'suspended meditation room' that is the spiritual center of the house. Matryoshka is the same word used to describe Russian nesting dolls that house smaller and smaller wooden figures inside each other. In this house, however, the space between each layer is filled with light.
