I thought being a mollusk must be miserable, you know, your living space is limited, you can only move in a tiny space, it sucks!
But, after I’ve seen these pictures, I totally change my mind! This project of a giant seashell house in Mexico City was built and designed by Arquitectura Organica’s Javier Senosiain.
This is really inspiring, it is said that the goal of this project was to make the inhabitants feel like they were living inside a snail.
Check out these photographs, you would be like, god I want one!
1. Outside the effect is equally as unusual, with the giant ‘peak’ of the shell evident above
2. Mollusc dreams:
Winding pathways and staircases fill the giant inside of the structure with its massive domed roof
The giant front wall of coloured glass creates a stunning mosaic effect in the living area
4. Greenery and white walls complement the characterful front wall of colour, with trees growing around a curved ‘sofa’
5. And at the centre of the natural structure… A TV.
6. Kitchen curves:
A stew bubbles away on the strangely normal looking hob. Let’s hope that’s not snail stew…
7. Time to do your teeth kids, and can you go a bit faster than snail’s pace?
8. Far out:
The curved walls of the Nautilus house resemble a giant shell, or perhaps something out of this world. But, is that a light switch in the foreground?
