Residential Architecture: El Pangue House by Elton+Leniz Arquitectos Asociados: “..El Pangue House stands on a steep slop site facing the ocean view. The house is developed towards a central vertical circulation, connecting the 4 levels and 3 terraces in which the house is organized, in order to get as much of the view of the pacific ocean as possible, taking advantage of the high offered by the natural slop of the site..Each level organizes a different part of the program; the access goes through the lower level were you find parking zone, storage and an open shower. The next level up meets the public zones of the house such as kitchen, play room, dining room and living room. The third level features bedrooms and family room and the fourth the main bedroom..The constructive system is generated upon sustaining concrete walls that terrace the site in three levels. The fourth level was designed in lightweight structure with wood siding. The living room level appears as a great terrace surrounded by planters which replace the railings..” Interesting form, materiality, interior volumes, details; extensive glazing, natural light, ocean views; indoor / outdoor sensibility..
