Pangal Cabin by EMa Architects

Pangal Cabin in Casablanca, Chile is quietly conscious of its surrounding neighbors, quillayes and cactus to name a few. In designing the getaway house, EMa Architects built stepped, orthogonal levels to complement the organic foliage and sloping hill upon which the residence sits. A façade of horizontal planks of wood helps transition the house’s terraces, gangway, and private spaces with the rest of the South American environment. Natural sunlight and solar energy maintain Pangal Cabin’s environmentally conscious construct, all the while creating a warm interior. Simulating the different levels inherent in the building’s form, a floating staircase in the double-height living room leads to a minimalistic mezzanine with a view that frames the treetops and horizon.
