Lautner's Arango House represents the quintessential Modernist idea of slab versus volume, to further progress this notion parametrically, we investigated natural ‘nesting’ systems to engage the space, as a series of intricate meshes.

The new 30% ‘addition’ for the Arango House, as asked for by the Curators of the Getty, hence became more of an ‘integration’, a nesting device which inserts itself between the two large horizontal plates of the living room. The mesh functions as a connecting device, a stair enclosure, and a light screen; at once delineating a sheltered seating space and a framing of the spectacular view inside the vague vastness of the open living room.
