- Crazy but True Stories
Ever dreamt of living the life of The Little Mermaid? You should consider a shell…
Ever been told to come out of your shell? It seems one family haven’t - in fact they have decided to live inside one.
Wanting to live in something other than their conventional home, and inspired by the work of Barcelona architect Gaudi, they embarked on building a sea shell shaped home.
Architect Javier Senosiain designed the property, located in Mexico, which comprises vast stained glass windows and resembles a shell both inside and out.
Wanting to feel closer to nature, the house is dominated by smooth surfaces, spiral stairs and natural plantings, giving the illusion of living inside a very large shell on the seaside.
With many away on their summer holiday, some could be dreaming of bringing a little memento of their holiday back with them. For most it will be a small keep-sake, but some may be inspired to build a shell all of their own.
