Many tiny houses, due to their sustainability, have taken on shapes that represent nature. Some look like pumpkin-shaped domes, others bloom open like flowers, and many look like logs – including one trippy log that look like it’s straight out of the pages of Alice In Wonderland.
Yet, the Nautilus house by Mexican architect Javier Senosiain of Arquitectura Organica, is the most fantastical tiny house we’ve stumbled upon thus far. Shaped as a shell, this home near Mexico City was inspired by the work of Gaudí, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Mother Nature herself.
Just look at it! It looks like something a mermaid would live in…or a giant squid! Whoever takes residence here, they’re sure to be as happy as a clam.
It is an example of what Senosiain describes as “bio-architecture” – the idea that buildings based on organic forms bring us back to our cultural roots and help to create harmony with nature.
It’s a beautiful concept and a beautiful home, so let’s take a peek inside this shell…
