Spiral House, Old Greenwich, Conn.
Architect: Joeb Moore & Partners Architects
Category: one- and two-family custom residences
Jury comments: Beautifully considered exterior spaces that provide opportunities for residents to view one another from different outdoor "rooms." … Conceptually taut, yet has a whimsical quality. … Simple wood cladding does a good job regularizing the elevations and the changes in mass.
