Spirals of the Nautilus by Calico Studio
This original studio designed by Calico represents a separate extension of the main dwelling house. Architects had no limits by working under the project except one requirement: existing trees had to be left untouched. The unusual form of the studio was inspired by Nautilus: the spiral shell originates from the human growth and turns into semicircular roof. To make an effect more natural the special materials, that are reminiscent of ancient cathedrals, were chosen. Whilst in order to keep a complex shape and to apply a high resistance to water OSB was defined as the best material. The studio has a simple layout just like a studio should have. An open space and small gallery on the first floor, which can be reached using a simple metal ladder. As the result we can see the original construction, in the functionality of which there can be little doubt.
