Nautilus Shell House
Future architects, take note! If youâ€™ve ever thought that being an architect might be a cool job, Iâ€™ll give you one more reason. You can create some of the coolest designs with a bit â€" or a lot â€" of imagination and the right client.
Senosiain Arquitectos' Nautilus was built with a 2" ferrocement shell and the material concretizes the idea making it true
This Nautilus Shell House in Mexico City is all of the above and people live here too! The clients, a young couple with two children who after living in a conventional home wanted to change to one integrated to nature. The land, with upward topography, is limited to the south, north and east by high buildings. The west adjoining provides a wide view of the mountains.
The model work generated numberless changes until achieving the volume needed by the construction: the Nautilus. This is actually a modified Nautilus shell, actual Nautilusâ€™ do not have a point on the top but I guess they expanded the shell for more comfort! The metaphor was to feel like an internal inhabitant of a snail, like a mollusk moving from one chamber to another, like a symbiotic dweller of a huge fossil maternal cloister. This home social life flows inside the Nautilus without any division, a harmonic area in three dimensions where you can notice the continuous dynamic of the fourth dimension when moving in spiral over the stairs with a feeling of floating over the vegetation.
