Gorgeous Seashell House in Mexico

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Let's start this promising week  with this stunning seashell house in Mexico, shall we? 

Who cares what the neighbors think? Let's build a unique shell shaped house! That's just what a Mexico City couple with their two children did, with the help of the astonishing imagination of Mexican architect Javier Senosiain of Arquitectura Organica. It's amazing. It has to be seen to be believed!

The house design is very innovative, unusual and audacious. Javier decided to bring the life aquatic into architecture. This house turns the form of the Nautilus shell and is wonderful to look at and to be in. 

The open concept inside the house is dominated by smooth surfaces, spiral stairs and natural plantings that makes the inhabitants feel like they're living inside a snail who swallowed the entire contents of somebody's back yard. 

While the house is surrounded on three sides by the bustling Mexico City, its West side (where most of its portal-style windows are located) has a breathtaking view of the mountains. Woww! Maybe someday all houses will be made this way!

Do you want to walk on the stone paths along the amazing grass carpet? Entering the bathroom you will fill yourself under the water with the sandy walls, gorgeous blue tiles and the window overhead. This house is worth speaking about for a long time.... It is not only beautiful but also earthquake-proof and maintenance-free.

Before I saw this I didn't even know I wanted to live in a giant shell, but now I totally do!

Anybody want to get together on weekends and start construction of something similar? And obviously by 'start construction' I mean go kill the world's largest nautilus and live in its shell. :-)

Have a breezy Monday,
