Living in a Sea Shell

Nautilus House

Do you know what's a Nautilus? yes it was the Captain Nemo's submarine, but mainly it is a mollusc, a cephalopod with a many-chambered, spiral shell.
Inspired by this particular shell, the architects from Senosiain Arquitectos realized this incredible house for a couple from Mexico City.
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.
