Nautilus shell-house

...I'd love to be under the sea,

in an octopus nautilus' garden in the shade

Here at Neatorama we love neat nautilus news. Recently we've brought you diving to meet a nautilus and nautilus snow sculpture but this latest contribution takes it to the next level wherever that may be.

The creative crew at Senosiain Architectos designed a sculpture perhaps taking inspiration from a certain Beatles song (although if we're getting technical, it's the right class- Cephalopoda- wrong subclass - Nautiloidea - their mortal enemies!). The construction involves steel reinforced chicken wire with several inches thick concrete spread over to create smooth curved surfaces, resembling the internal abode of a snail.

The house located in Mexico city and currently occupied by an open-minded family, though some hermit crabs have been eyeing it out as a potential future residence.

Check out more of these amazing abodes at Habitat Organico including a serpent and shark!

When I was a child I SO wanted to live in the giant pink snail from the original Dr. Dolittle. I even begged my parents to turn my room into it, but to no avail. Thank God I didn't see this back then or I'd STILL be bugging them to move there to this day.
