A living space architecture design which called the Matryoshka House is completed designed by the architect David Jameson. This living space is designed in Bethesda, Maryland. This small living space design is organized as a series of the volumes which is nested one inside another. At the core of the living space, a suspended meditation chamber acts as the physical and the spiritual center of the project. Within an open glowing frame, the internal energy of the meditation chamber is encapsulated.
To deliberately ascend the threshold to the meditation chamber, an alternating tread stair engages the participant. A wooden container which encases the living areas of the living space is surrounds the meditation chamber and by the stucco walls which serving as a protective layer and grounding the living space to the earth, the shell is in turn cradled. To allow the sun to protect lines of the light within, the in-between spaces of the nested volumes are strategically sliced. The interstitial spaces which allow the light to become an architectural material which activates the interior, it is by separating the three shells.
