Here's a little more text from Marra + Yeh Architects:


The Spiral by Marra + Yeh Architects

Connecting three levels of a multi-generational home the spiral concerns both the poetic and the pragmatic.

The Spiral by Marra + Yeh Architects

The skill and delicate craft of traditional boat builders was enlisted to build the curving tapering form. The spiral contains the freedom of our movements, addressing the interaction of people with their environment, a vessel to enrich our daily rituals.
