This house brings new meaning to the phrase “coming out of your shell.” If I lived here I’m not sure that I’d want to leave too often.
The Nautilus House in Naucalpan, Mexico was designed by Mexico City’s Senosiain Arquitectos for “a young couple with two children who after living in a conventional home wanted to change to one integrated to nature.”
“The metaphor was to feel like an internal inhabitant of a snail, like a mollusk moving from one chamber to another, like a symbiotic dweller of a huge fossil maternal cloister. This home social life flows inside the Nautilus without any division, a harmonic area in three dimensions where you can notice the continuous dynamic of the fourth dimension when moving in spiral over the stairs with a feeling of floating over the vegetation.”
