Design Inspiration from Nature

 

The houses we build for shelter, like most of the things we have created to enhance our lives, often take inspiration and ideas from nature.  Take the case of the Nautilus Seashell home in Mexico City, designed and built by Javier Sinosiain of Arquitectura Organica. The sinuous lines, the exquisite color, and the iridescent shine of the nautilus seashell is here captured and replicated in this stunning, whimsical and dream-like residential structure.  Prepare to indulge your visual senses as you go through these photos.  Then don’t forget to tell us what you think on our Facebook Page!

 

The home was built back in 2006, and features a smooth front facade met with a giant wall of colored mosaics, lighting up the living space in a stunning rainbow effect.  Inspired by the works of Gaudi and Frank Lloyd Wright (as can be seen by the natural plantings and spiral staircases located throughout the dwelling) the structure houses a young family that includes two children.
