Imagine living in a gigantic spiral seashell, your senses transporting you to the ocean, while in the middle of your city life.
Mexican architect and professor Javier Senosiain, specialized in “Organic Architecture”, envisioned and designed this strange yet alluring structure.
Called The Nautilus, the house was created with curves and spirals, making its walls seem continuous with nature. Although it is easier to construct hard angled shapes, the purpose of The Nautilus is to make one feel as if they are living in harmony with the outdoors.
The design features a brightly stunning stained glass wall and oval shaped windows that filter natural light. The whole house contains this curvy flowing architecture embellished by green plants and sandy colored walls.
Although the design is undeniably breathtaking, it does bring up a few questions regarding how eco-sustainable it is.
The cost of maintaining the structure’s materials is unknown, and the design itself is definitely not concerned with conserving space.
Nonetheless, it is a spectacular example of our desire to be immersed in the beauty of nature.
