Shell House "Nautilus"

"Nautilus House" was designed by a Mexican architect called Javier Senosiain in 2006 and is located in Naucalpan, Mexico. Javier can definitely not be accused of having a lack of imagination or creativity. He was born 1948 and is considered the key example as well as an explorer of organic architecture.

It is like living in the sound or in the note or in the vibration, so much natural and dreamy the same time. I can only imagine what a beautiful energy is within such walls and how creative must one live the life if living in such creative environment. Beautiful, Sabina thanks!!!!

While I'm absolutely impressed by the outside and the ingenious idea of a shellhouse, the inside looks cold and inhospitable to me. I don't know...
