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.

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.
