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!
