The Amazing Nautilus Shell House

  • Pin it

Now that’s a post V-Day Miracle! One that can be spawned only by love. Love for art, love for architecture.

You know I can’t help it when finding something like that, even if it’s not signed by Karl The Lagerfeld or shown off by Kate La Moss, I absolutely have to share beauty with you!

Nautilus Home Exterior

Nautilus Shell House was build for a Mexico City couple by Senosiain Arquitectos. Leaving heavy architectural details aside (always loved architecture but only as an amateur so I won’t charge you with construction mumbling), the house is put together using a frame of steel-reinforced chicken wire with a concrete spread over it, resulting an earthquake proof structure.

Just take at a look at that smooth interior, spiraled and invaded by nature.

Looks to me like a dream house made by people who aren’t afraid to make every dream come true. And it’s the second example of what a great house love can build that I give you.

Nautilus Home Section

I have to wonder, anyway, if they have kids. And if so, how old are they? Because I know a couple of toddlers more than happy to decompose the place into little, tiny pieces.

Nautilus Home Bedroom

I guess it’s only up to me, writing the Mexico City Nautilus couple for a visit in their dream shell of a house.

What about you? Would you live in such a home? Or you’re more conservative?

Beautiful, so soothing

This is amazing, and beautiful. Thanks for sharing. To be honest, I’m slightly claustrophobic. I don’t think that I could personally live in it – it looks like there are some pretty small spaces in there.

looks like final fantasy 7 houses in the village where Aeris dies

@ari it’s almost unbelievable that people actually live in there!
@Laura pictures have a way of deforming spaces. Truth enough, I have no idea how space is calculated in this mansion, I think it’s the curbed walls that give the impression of claustrophobic environment (I am a little stressed by little spaces too!).
@yoko uno so what stopped you from building it?:P
@Fred It’s slightly resembling. However I had the impression that the FF house was more underwater. But maybe it’s just my non-gaming self speaking :)

Yes, the husband and wife have two kids.

The house looks like something out of the original Star Trek series. I half expect some alien babe in a beehive ‘do to pop out or something. :D

it’s certainly an artistic Revolution! I feel rhythmic balance is very good from interior inside and the exterior is a classic feel of aesthetic beauty of Shell.

Why have I never commented on this? It’s so amazing and dreamy and so nice there’s not a Karl or a Kate insight….

hideous, garish, kitsch overload

#14 Aleah on 09.03.10 at 9:00 pm
