Arango Residence

Modern Mexican house with the Upper level living and dining terrace, overlooking Acapulco Bay. This beautiful, organic-shaped residence was designed in 1972 and completed the year after.

Arango Residence in Mexico by John Lautner architect

The house was commissioned in 1970 by Jeronimo Arango as a weekend home for his family. The client had seen Elrod House in publications and wanted a similar house. He wanted the property to look out over the bay of Acapulco.

The house uses a concrete structure with two floors. It is also known by the name of Residencia Mar Brisas.

The Arango Residence was photographed by the celebrated architectural photographer Julius Shulman (1910 – 2009). Julius was an American architectural photographer best known for his photographs of Case Study House #22, Los Angeles, 1960, designed by Pierre Koenig Architect.

Acapulco Chapel
The client brief was pretty simple, almost naïve: First, the chapel had to take full advantage of the spectacular views. Second, the sun had to set exactly behind the altar cross (of course, this is only possible twice a year at the equinoxes).

The plot is located in among a high infrastructure and tourist area, this concentrates potential to develop a mixed multi and single-family product. The design process on this 13,500 sqm plot, focuses on the central distribution of common areas (pool and relaxing areas) , achieving easy access to the 38 lots that surround the common areas with streets and vegetation.
