Quet­zal­cóatl’s Nest

The Week (US) - - Leisure -

Mex­ico City

Would you sleep in­side a giant feath­ered ser­pent? asked Brooke Porter Katz in Ar­chi­tec­turalDigest.com. Named af­ter an Aztec cre­ator de­ity, Nido de Quet­zal­cóatl is an “oth­er­worldly, twist­ing, turn­ing” struc­ture lo­cated on Mex­ico City’s out­skirts. Built in 1998 by ar­chi­tect Javier Senosi­ain, the “awein­spir­ing” build­ing sits in a pri­vate park amid gar­dens and ponds. It houses 10 apart­ments, and one of them is for rent through Airbnb. The five-bed­room, four-bath­room space is some­what bare, “but what it lacks in flash it makes up for in the sheer feel­ing of won­der you’ll feel just be­ing in­side.” airbnb.com; ren­tals start at $206
