Samuel Waring, an Irish gentleman and amateur architect, drew a set of circular house plans in 1715 –
It is a workmanlike plan. Round houses are a peculiarly difficult shape in which to optimize access, circulation and rooms. I am pleased with our own solution, but variations on square and rectangular plans afford the designer more options for both shape and shape utilization.
Round forms are more suitable for buildings; to get the most effect of round forms, the interior spaces should be round or curved also.
We built our round house with straight interior walls, other than the circumference. The floor plan followed long consideration of all the round houses whose floor plans we could discover prior to building our house.
