The House Arango has minimized construction to become pure architectural spectacle. This house has a panoramic ocean view and a moat around the building terrace not embrace the side where he was raised but springs it dramatically, which giant mushroom. In 1977 he was ranked by the magazine Record as "a party space, mixing room, the sea and the sky." It was built in less than a year and would be the only project of Lautner in Mexico.

Project : The house was commissioned in 1970 by Jeronimo Arango, "Mexican gentleman" as a weekend home for your family. Arango had seen publications Elrod House and wanted to make their new home with Lautner as Arthur Elrod as architect and interior designer. A requirement that the owner was asked that had great views over the bay of Acapulco, hence the choice of site. The house seems to float between sea and sky.
Lautner responded with a concrete structure with two floors and 2,300 square meters of construction.
Arango's family still owns the house that always offer a feast for the senses. In 1994, shortly before his death, Lautner received a new order for the family to design another residence in Southern California. That project never went beyond schematic design.
Location : The house is located on the street Cda. Cardinal winds, on a steep hill bay Acapulco, in the southwest of Mexico, with wide beaches on the Pacific Ocean. It is also known by the name of Residencia Mar Brisas.
Like other modern architects as Richard Neutra whose work integrates architecture and the environment by extending the first within the landscape, in this house, Lautner acted on this principle, conceived the house as an extension of the topography and architectural forms used to frame the view of the outside, as did his master Frank Lloyd Wright.
Lautner invested with the same generous "feeling of freedom" both more modest houses, the roadside restaurants or luxury residences, which led to an increasingly radical sense of continuity between the built environment and the world of around and revolutionary fluency in developing and structuring of space.
