As more and more tiny homes make their way into the mainstream, we are beginning to see a trend taking place in terms of architecture, that is, shapes inspired by the flow of nature.
The following tiny home was conceptualized by Mexican architect Javier Senosiain of Arquitectura Organica, a type of design he calls “bio-architecture” —the idea that buildings based on organic forms bring us back to our cultural roots and help to create harmony with nature.
Infused with clever splashes of colourful stained glass light and an array of whimsical stone stepping-ways and greenery, its interior layout evidently exudes a ‘lost in Wonderland’ feel. Even more magical is the exterior, which is shaped like a giant sea shell.
Senosiain said the project came about after a young family from Mexico City were tired living in a conventional home and wanted to change to one integrated to nature. The result is undoubtedly astounding.
Another highlight of this tiny home is that it is earthquake-proof and maintenance proof, a highly crucial feature considering the location.
Senosiain’s bio-architect concept is surely the type of progressive thinking we need moving forward in a world of sustainability. Besides that, it’s just so freaking cool! Who wouldn’t want a house like this?
