Nautilus House

Nautilus House
Claudia Cukrov

Senosiain Arquitectos architecture firm have designed a shell-shaped residential home, based on the shape of the Nautilus’ shell.  The Mexico-based abode currently houses a couple and two small children.

The house was constructed using Ferrocement, a composite material containing with cement, sand, water and wire or mesh.  Other than being economical , the technique has many benefits, including; hardy, fire-proof, earthquake-safe, anti-rust and maintenance-free.

DVICE explains:

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. Wow. Maybe someday all houses will be made this way.
