Just about everything in The Nautilus House, designed/created by organic architect, Javier Senosiain, is round or curved; “the floor is the logarithmic spiral, adapting itself to the land.” This 2007 mollusc mansion, near Mexico City, is so filled with mandalas and mandala-like elements, that it would be easier for me to point out where there isn’t one!

Even the bed is round!

From his web site about this house:

When entering from the outside you go up the stairs and, when getting inside the Nautilus through a big stained-glass window, a space experience is generated as you live the sequence of the distance traveled, where neither the walls nor the floor or the ceiling are parallel. It is a fluid space in three dimensions where you can perceive the continuous dynamic of the fourth dimension as you walk in spiral on the stairs, with a sense of floating over the vegetation.

I would LOVE to live in this house…at the very least be invited over for dinner and a tour. hint hint wink wink 🙂
