David Jameson Architect
Burning Tree Residence is a mansion of 350 sq m, built by the David Jameson Architect in a secluded and quiet place in the U.S. state of Maryland. During the construction of the house architects faced with a number of limitations, such as a small budget, space and nature. So it was decided to use part of recycled materials. This factor did not affect the appearance and characteristics of the building, but the economy had turned very significant. The house consists of three blocks, which are placed on a common foundation. Extensive wall glazing allows to maximize natural lighting and interiors look very bright. This house is also energy efficient. For energy supply the residence was equipped with solar panels that provide the whole power inputs of the building.

A matryoshka doll is a Russian nesting doll which is a set of dolls of decreasing sizes placed one inside the other. A set of matryoshkas consists of a wooden figure which separates, top from bottom, to reveal a smaller figure of the same sort inside, which has, in turn, another figure inside of it, and so on. The idea inspired the designers of David Jameson Architect, who created Matryoshka House in Maryland, USA. If you look closely at home, it is not difficult to guess why it got such a name. The house consists of several volumes that are embedded into each other - the wooden part of the house is situated between two concrete walls. And inside this structure there is another sub-cube, which is a meditation room.
