The Casa el Pangue is located on a steep hillside in a rural area of Chile. Designed by local architects, Elton and Leniz, its contemporary geometric design and the combination of the contrasting elements of concrete and wood on the exterior are features used in past projects by the innovative architectural firm.

The natural beauty of the region and the spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean backed by a forested hillside dictate the multi-leveled flow of the structure. The lower level contains the parking area which is connected to the upper levels by a series of stairs. The main living area is on the third level, an open space with floor to ceiling windows which lead out onto a generous terrace where planters take the place of railings to allow an uninterrupted sea view.

The upper level is clad in wood, chosen for its ability to age over time and blend in perfectly with the concrete base. The bedrooms on this level have the advantage of an additional balcony which faces the hillside offering a rural country view. The natural materials of wood and stone chosen for the interior make this home entirely compatible with its natural surroundings and enable it to effortlessly become part of its rural environment.
