Might I suggest a double-helix arrangement. Each room would be a module, maybe a bit less than a quarter circle. The core of the house could be left open as an atrium space, with a circular staircase on the periphery. Each level would have two rooms opposite each other. One room would have direct access to the cicular staircase, the other would be accessed by a small open corridor on the periphery of the atrium. Terrace spaces could fill the voids between the two room modules. Each level would have their modules offset, by maybe 30 degrees, to form a twisting pattern.
