O.K., I could live there. Reminds me of Gaudi's free form achitecture. I wonder what the seagulls think...

Karen said...

Wow! I love it!

Cindy said...

That is awesome... I don't think I'd want to live in it everyday but as a summer house... (hah. as if I'd ever be able to afford one of those!)

Beautiful...what is it about Mexico, there seem to be so many wonderful, innovative architects there, willing to try something different?! I had a peek at the website and I love this (highly appropriate) typo under the first pic...
"The Conch Shell House was built using a fairy traditional material, such as concrete, as well as recycled and found materials."

Traditional fairy building methods... definitely need more of those!

Wow, I so love that house!
My "character" for FaerieCon's Bad Faerie Ball needs to live in it!
