Nautilus Giant Seashell House in Mexico City

Looking at some designer’s creations one can be astonished by the power and the creativity of the human mind. Nautilus House, the Giant Seashell House, in Mexico City, built in 2006, is an amazing shell-shaped house designed by architect Javier Senosiain of Arquitectura Organica. He designed the house for a young family with two children who were tired of living in a conventional home and wanted to change to one integrated to nature.

Inspired by the work of Gaudí and Frank Lloyd Wright, the Seashell house is dominated by smooth surfaces, spiral stairs and natural plantings that makes it feel like you’re living inside a snail. The house design is very innovative, unusual and audacious. Javier Senosiain decided to bring the life aquatic into architecture.

But it’s not the only surprise you will find. The house is put together using ferrocement construction, a technique involving a frame of steel-reinforced chicken wire with a special two-inch-thick composite of concrete spread over it, resulting in a structure that’s earthquake-proof and maintenance-free.
