From the architect: Vortex house combines familiar regular forms with more dynamic elements that suggest motion and spinning. The new walls are folded and pinched as necessary to make space, as if the entire surface of the new interior is made of a single sheet of folded paper.

About Ogrydziak & Prillinger Architects – OPA
At Ogrydziak & Prillinger Architects, we believe in progressive built work, driven by ideas. We believe that architecture influences how we see the world and live in it. That architecture impacts our perceptions and emotions, and acts as a physical framework for thought. By organizing our bodies and experiences in space, architecture can transform us. Our strength at OPA is identifying and crafting spatial experiences to make that possible.
For us, every project is personal, whether private or public. Fundamental to our work is our close relationship to our clients and communities, whose use of our spaces give life to the architecture. We see the design process as a joint exploration of expanding and choreographing what’s possible. Together, we uncover what a project really wants to be and make that desire a physical reality.
