With the recent passing of Memorial Day, I can't help but be giddy about the Summer and all of the delicious summertime things that are to come.I can't wait to be able to lay by the pool! In fact, I was talking to an architect friend of mine about pools the other day and he gushed over the ones designed by the late architect John Lautner.Of course, I had to look him up, and when I did, I melted. So, without further ado, here's some eye candy to supress your Monday woes!
(Note: Above image is of the Elrod House in Palm Springs, Ca. built by Lautner in 1968)
The Mar Brisas House (also known as the Arango Residence) is located in Acapulco, Mexico and was built in 1973 for Mexican supermarket magnate Jeronimo Arango. This paradise of a residence is 25,000 square feet! Lautner built the swimming pool in line with the beach below.
Another amazing view of the upper terrace and the pool.
Yet another spectacular view of the home. The curvature, made of poured concrete is incredible!
