‘El Pangue House stands on a steep slope 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 slope of the site.
Each level organizes a different part of the program; the access goes through the lower level where one can find a parking zone, storage and an open shower. The next level up meets the public zones of the house such as the kitchen, play room, dining room and living room. The third level features the bedrooms and a family room and the fourth the master bedroom.
The constructive system is generated upon sustaining concrete walls that terraces 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 replaces the railings.’
