A typical home in Mexico City is usually three stories, built with bricks and cement. Most houses have the following floor plan:
Every room is painted to its own theme, ant the bathrooms follow their own design. There is a balcony facing the patio and the patio is colorfully decorated with plants and flowers.
The Whimsical House, however, designed by architect Javier Senoriain, does not follow this typical floor plan. Instead, this modern house brings the aquatic life into architecture.
The house is in the shape of a shell and features an entry cut into a wall of colorful stained glass windoes that shine colorful hues into the interior of the house.
Stone paths and “grass carpet” lead guests into various rooms of the house. The bathroom has sandy walls, making you believe you are under the sea.
What makes this house stand out from the rest of the houses found in Mexico City it is “organic” design. Everything found in the house is made with natural materials.
