Mexico’s Giant Seashell House

 

Many have wondered what life would be like living in a sea shell, and that was the exact inspiration behind the beautifully crafted Nautilus.

 

This giant seashell house is located in Mexico City, and was built and designed by Arquitectura Organica’s own Javier Senosiain. The home was built back in 2006, and features a smooth front facade met with a giant wall of colored mosaics, lighting up the living space in a stunning rainbow effect.

 

Whether you think it looks like a giant snail or seashell, the home is definitely quite strange, but it was actually designed to blend in with the natural surroundings in what Senosiain likes to call “Bio-Architecture.”
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 shell. 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.
