Maybe architect Javier Senosiain watched Dr. Doolittle one too many times, or maybe he just had to know what it’s like living inside of a snail shell. The result? He built a house with that very theme, in Mexico of all places, and dubbed it “The Nautilus House”.
Inspired by the work of Gaudí and Frank Lloyd Wright, Javier Senosiain has brought to Mexico City another sparkling example of what he calls “Bio-Architecture” — the idea that buildings based on the natural principles of organic forms bring us back to local history, tradition and cultural roots, in turn creating harmony with nature.
I have to say, I’ve never been invited to a nautilus house party before, but I’m wondering two things: What magic was involved? And who was the decorator?
