The outer design of the Nautilus House looks as though it has emerged from the very grounds it sits on. Surrounded by green and open spaces, the shell shaped structure is colored in shades of beige and brown with a colorful stained glass window wall to contrast against its natural palette. Sunlight coming through the stained window wall fills the entrance with an orange glow. The inner spaces are filled with rounded windows that allow natural light to illuminate the details.
Nautilus House, Mexico City, Mexico Inspired by the work of Antoni Gaudí and Frank Lloyd Wright, the Nautilus House in Mexico City was designed by Javier Senosiain of Arquitectura Orgánica to resemble a seashell. The smooth walls and spiral interior create a transporting experience that suggests what it must be like to walk in a cephalopods shoes—well, shell.
