Life In A Shell February 19, 2008

Shell House 6

Future architects, take note! If you’ve ever thought that being an architect might be a cool job, I’ll give you one more reason. You can create some of the coolest designs with a bit – or a lot – of imagination and the right client.

The habitants of this very cool ‘shell house,’ are a young couple with two kids. They originally lived in a traditional house – one most of us would call normal – before deciding that they needed a change. To spice things up, they worked with an architect to create a home that was nicely tuned in with nature. The special idea was for each member of the family to feel almost like a snail, moving with ease from one room to another in the spectacular abode. The house itself is called Nautilus and was created by architects at Senosiain Arquitectos.

If you see architecture as being a job you would enjoy, the classes to focus on in high school are physics, mathematics and, of course, art. Now hop to it! I’m still hoping for a dream house made of some special melt-proof chocolate. I have faith that one day, such chocolate will exist. Perhaps I can hire one of my readers to design it for me sometime in the near future. I’ll even pay extra if you can add in some white chocolate!

I was just wondering when I would be able to move?
Do you have the information for the real estate agent? No more need for antiques when you have this house!

Well, somehow I don’t think the family is planning to take in any guests but I suppose you could always email them and ask nicely. :p Yes indeed, antiques would look very out of place in that house!

Wow! This is really cool. Thanks for posting about it.

P.S. I’ve been missing you.

Aw bless. I’ve been overwhelmed with university and work deadlines, which have unfortunately kept me from updating the blog as often as I would like. Still, I plan to give myself a swift kick in the mina-derriere so that I somehow make the time. This is one of my favorite places to be!

Found my dream home. Thanks!

Your dream home? I think you will have to battle it out with a lot of people! Mind you, we could make it a group effort – invade and take over. :p

Truly weird. Funnily enough, someone just asked me why I don’t have a scifi art gallery on my site…maybe that’s something I should create. There are so many great artists out there coming up with fantastic stuff like this all the time.


8. Miss Weird Scientist - February 21, 2008

Yep, it’s simply phenomenal how such an unusual and artistic home can be created with the right focus and talent.

David, a sci-fi gallery would be ace! Please do. Hehe. :)

hey guys sorry to burst your bubble, but this house is crap, It may well designed spatially (i wouldnt know because there are no plans/sections), but the executions is all wrong, insead of being sleek, it turnned into the mushroom house from the smurfs, from the 1960s, alls it needs is shagg carpeting, and some lava lamps (antiques)

Hey jes perdu, why don’t you make a house, so we can see what “crap” really is. I think this house is pretty cool, not my style, but it certainly took artistic vision. If this is a mushroom house, it is a psilocyben mushroom.
