Inspired by an Aztec serpent god, Quetzalcoatl's Nest is an awe-inspiring sculpture garden, created by the acclaimed Mexican architect, Javier Senosiain.
With the aim of creating an organic space that would respect the rugged natural environment of Naucalpan de Juárez, just north of Mexico City, Senosiain built a serpent-like structure (complete with a mesmerizing head and tail) that maximizes the natural caves and curves surrounding it. The result is ten breathtaking apartments spread over 165,000 square feet, complete with extensive botanical gardens, sparkling lakes, and enchanting mineral caves.
Bring up to seven guests along with you, to stay right in the ‘belly' of the serpent; or in other words, a unique five-bedroom apartment. Each room is cleverly connected by tunnels, and as there are no doors aside from the main entrance, natural light can come flooding inside.
Meanwhile, you can expect full home-style facilities, including a laundry room, a sociable living space, and a well-equipped kitchen with all the essentials (including bread, fruit and coffee) provided.
Of course, you can also expect jaw-dropping views of the surrounding landscape, which looks as though it's been inspired by the pages of a fantasy novel. It truly has to be seen to be believed, and once you have, it'll be hard to imagine a location more able to inspire relaxation, creativity, and pure wonder.
Friendly owner Patricia is more than happy to take you on a private tour of the botanical gardens, sharing her vast knowledge of the land and architecture along the way. With the gardens only accessible to private residents and apartment guests, you're sure to feel a wondrous sense of tranquillity as you explore.
