Wooden Chili Residence
Located in the rural area of Chili, the Casa el Pangue residence is a wonderful architectural endevour by Elton + Leniz Architects. The house is a four level residence with a magical view on the Pacific coast. Each level of the house is desinged by tiers, connected by staircases that follow the steep slope. The residence is composed primarily from stone, wood and glass.
The house offers several terraces, the biggest one being located on the third floor, where by planters serve as railings. The residence has all of the contemporary conveniances and a connection with the outdoors, such as parking zone, storage and an open shower, kitchen, play room, dining room and living room, bedrooms and family room. As described by Nicolás Jure Wilkens of Elton + Léniz:
“We worked the steep site with a terrace on every level, with the volumes of the building each facing out from the site to the sea. We decided to make the upper floor with a very light structure, making it different to the lower floors,” Wilkens explained. “We chose to use this kind of wood because as time passes it becomes a grey colour, similar to the concrete.”
