Nautilus: Giant Seashell House
If you’ve ever wondered how it feels to be living in a shell, you should visit the Nautilus House in Mexico City. This amazing shell-shaped house was designed by architect Javier Senosiain of Arquitectura Organica and built in 2006. As strange as it looks, it’s a real house built for a young family with two children who were tired living in a conventional home and wanted to change to one integrated to nature.
Inspired by the work of Gaudí and Frank Lloyd Wright, the house is dominated by smooth surfaces, spiral stairs and natural plantings that makes it feel like you’re living inside a snail.
