javier senosiain‘s nido de quetzalcoatl (quetzalcoatl’s nest) is a surreal house north of mexico city in the shape of a snake – now available to rent on airbnb. a key proponent of organic architecture, senosiain has used color and shape to blend the structure within the 5,000 sq.m of irregular land. the continuous form lifts off the ground, and, colored in a combination of green, blue, purple, and orange hues, transports visitors in a dreamy, psychedelic environment. the ten apartments contained within its contoured walls contrast the vibrant exterior with a white palette and soft, wooden surfaces.

the mexican architect preserved a 50-meter-long and 6-meter-wide cave, one of the many that were found within the site’s extremely irregular topography, which was the one to inspire the form of the house, as it resembled the head of a snake with open jaws. ‘one day, I thought that the mouth of the cave resembled a snake’s head with open jaws,’ notes senosiain, ‘we located it in the scale model and noticed that it seemed a virtual snake going in and out of the land -we decided then to place a tail and call it quetzalcoatl.’ organic architecture enthusiasts can now enjoy the snake house from within its ‘belly’, as nido de quetzalcoatl is available to rent on airbnb.

  • Wonderful brilliant project … filled with art whimsy and humor … can’t say that I’ve ever like anything more on this site … craftsmanship is superb …
