Casa El Pangue tiered house by Elton + Léniz

Casa El Pangue tiered house by Elton + Léniz | Art and Spaces | Scoop.it

Panoramic Pacific views can be enjoyed from terraces created by the tiered levels of this hillside house in Chile by architects Elton + Léniz.

 

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 height offered by the natural slop of the site.

 

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.
