A Deeper Look at the Nautilus – The Snail Shell Dwelling

22 Feb

This is the Nautilus! A couple in Naucalpan, Mexico decided that they wanted an unconventional home. So they hired the designer Javier Senosiain’s  and Senosiain Arquitectos to draw a unique, snail-shell shaped house. The house is an amazing combination of colors and shapes. It´s a  work of mind bending architecture and art.

The designer calls the place a sparkling example of  “Bio-Architecture”. “The building is based on the natural principles of organic forms bring us back to local history, tradition and cultural roots, in turn creating harmony with nature.”

Ever wanted to live in a snail-shell?

17 Feb

I love architecture, but some times I think the houses can become a bit too extravagant. I found these houses at Leanova Designs. The house in the first picture looks pretty cool, but would you feel comfortable living in a “car”-house.

What do you think? They are really unconventional, crazy and funny to look at, but would you ever live in an unconventional?
