Of all the unusual buildings I came across , this one really fascinated me. It might be the bright colours, the fantacy-like interior or just because of the fact that it looks like a shell. I was even more intrigued by this whole structure when I read that it is an actual home to actual real-life people, not Spunge Bob Square Pant's home.
A Shell house? Jip, it's exactly that..
The beautiful and surreal Nautilus Shell House was build for a Mexico City couple by Senosiain Arquitectos. It was built to resemble a nautilis shell. The house is put together using a frame of steel-reinforced chicken wire with a concrete spread over it, resulting an earthquake proof structure. The couple is currently living in the house togehther with their two small children.
