Do You Want To Dream Different?

This mind teasing structure that you are viewing in pictures below was designed and developed by organic architect Javier Senosiain.

Javier Senosiain is a Mexican architect who has a peculiar taste to create numerous marvels in different patterns. This particular shell house aptly named “Nautilus House” was given shape in 2006 at a place called Naucalpan in Mexico. Being an exceptional one directly from the imagination of its architect, it naturally had to undergo enough changes testing the patience of its builder. The concept “Organic” can be well experienced from the way one feels being amidst the nature. The way the structure and the interiors have been designed is nothing but teasing the ever hungry urban population confined to concrete jungles. Do you want to be the one, dreaming different?

The original Dr Doolittle movie where they ride back to England in the shell of the giant pink sea snail. That’s what this reminds me of. I would have given my right arm for this house as a child :) Come to think of it I would still love it. The colors and smooth lines and shear whimsy are just fantastic.

I LOVE IT!!!!!

Very lovely and interesting, though vertigo inducing for those of us with weak inner ears. I’d love to see it, even if I would keep walking sideways into the walls.

would love to hang and trip there. Still just a cheap fabrication that will fall apart pretty quick without a huge amount of maintenance.

I like the natural flow and just how he was a little looser with the interior design. It’s not as regimented or tightly organized feeling as your normal “living in a box” kind of home.

I absolutely love it! God! I wish I lived there! From the outside it doesn’t look that big, but inside it’s huge! It is definitely a house from one’s dreams.

brickbat – I am quite confident saying you have never built a house and have no idea what you are talking about when you say its a cheap house, that will fall apart. It is entirely possible to make a sturdy house that does not look conventional and it does not appear this was done cheaply. The counter-tops for instance look like coriander and that is not a cheap counter-top. Weeping for English – I am sure that my English is not perfect in this post, the title of the article works just fine though. The house is different, the builder dreamed different….the house is not differently. They are using the word differently than how you read it. There are always a couple negative people in these great articles that feel the need to attack the art and author. These people usually become an expert on English and the subject matter, instantly. Of course that is why they are posting a blog comment instead of writing the article or creating the art that they know so much about. Duuussshhhhh! :)

WOW!!! I absolutely LOVE this house!! I would love to live in a place like that! I’ve seen enough straight lines and boxes to last a lifetime! Let’s encourage more people to dream, then make their dreams real.

I already dream like this. If your mind were a can, LSD would be the can opener. But, kids: don’t do LSD… before trying marijuana, at least. Both are among the safest drugs (aspirin, chocolate, included) there are. With the exception that you can freak out on LSD. But you won’t jump out of a window, that’s a myth; people don’t/won’t do that on LSD. You can, however, experience a bad trip if you: try to resist its power, have a negative attitude towards LSD, are in a bad mood, are trying to ‘escape it all’ with LSD, etc. If you go at it with positive attitude and a free spirit, you’re good. And don’t be afraid to face yourself – very important.

I love the way the lines just flow. I’m a huge fan of the Victorian style but what you’ve presented here is incredible. It has a clean, futuristic and colorful profile. You also managed to incorporate the natural world into the scene. Fantastic…..

Where does he keep his stuff? Not one book, extra pillow or piece of mail to be seen. Does he not need paperclips or kitchen knives?

Chris R said,

November 6, 2009 @ 8:56 am

A very interesting space. A work of art really. The only negative is that you cannot change things around or redecorate if you get bored. Plus, there is no art on the walls except the tile work and stained glass.

Still a wonderful structure.

Rob said,

Incredible. The rooms just flow into each other or the outdoors

What an incredible building, but Burdius is the only one to have commented on my major concern… storage space! No bookcases, very little visible storage of any kind. Looks like an exciting and beautiful place to visit, but just not functional as a home.

Gorgeous. This is very similar to the earthship homes built outside of Taos, NM. They are very functional (i.e. storage space, etc) and off the grid. Quite do-able, and affordable if you assist in the construction of it. Plus, they’re not just for warm climates – Taos gets snow.

Love the use of glass, the colour of the light really makes this place special!

Greg said,

February 26, 2010 @ 1:46 am

Beautiful, but not really functional. I think this would be a very difficult house to live in. I don’t know if they’ve shown the whole house, but all in all, it seems very uncomfortable.

Reminds me of an abstract version of that “room no one can enter” in some homes.

Just my view from these pictures. Beautiful none the less.

This house is incredibly stunning. So many smooth flowing lines, sweeps, and curves. I would love to live in it, though with some of the textures inside it might not be so fun to clean. Still, really beautiful home.

I’ve seen these photos many times, and each time I thing: “Yuck! I bet is smells weird in there.” Why I get that impression, I don’t know…except it reminds me of old playground/play house structures; that weird, moldy, damp smell. Give me Frank Lloyd Wright or similarly designed homes any day!

I’m serious. I need to live there. From now on, I’m saving up for it.

Jenna said,

It’s a very interesting structure. It sort of remind me of the Flintstones. I love all the indoor plants.

Looks to me like a direct ripoff or at least HEAVILY influenced by the Dean Brothers. They designed, patented and built something close to this. Not to mention they are fantastic artists.
Even so, this is pretty cool. I think a lot of the negative comments are because it’s so radically different from our ‘norm’.
We are used to straight lines, corners and dominating nature.
This works WITH nature and fits in rather well.

Shven said,

It’s like a fantasy; I expected to see fairies hiding in the shrubbery! Quite a work of art (but the lavender bed sheets have to go!).
