Looking at some designer’s creations one can be astonished by the power and the creativity of the human mind. This can be said about the Nautilus house located near Mexico City. It is a unique shell shaped house designed by Mexican architect Javier Senosiain. The house design is very innovative, unusual and audacious. Javier Senosiain decided to bring the life aquatic into architecture. This house turns the form of the Nautilus shell and is wonderful to look at and to be in. The interesting feature of this huge shell is a striking entry cut into a wall of colorful stained glass. Inside it casts multi-colored spots of light onto walls. But it’s not the only surprise you will find.
Over the last years Japanese architecture becomes more and more inspiring and gives the world the increasing amount of unique ultramodern design ideas. This outstanding house is another example of extraordinary Japanese architecture. It was created by ARTechnic architects and is located in the forest near Kitasaku, a district of Nagano. There are not too many of such intact places in Japan; the surrounding trees and the tree in the patio make you feel very calm and close to the nature. Unlike it is with other contemporary homes you won’t find too many sharp edges in the Shell Residence design. ARTechnic didn’t only design the exterior, but also created the special furniture collection to complement the general concept of the house.
