the recently completed ‘casa casablanca 67’ has been developed as one in a series of three speculative vacation homes in a scenic area of chile’s valparaíso region. designed by architect orlando etcheberrigaray of the studio emA and built/managed by osvaldo cardemil and sebastián gandarillas, the project’s intention is to provide a dwelling with a simple yet refined layout to function either as a ready-for-habitation model or allow for extensions and modifications.

located on a hillside site, the house’s floor levels step downward toward a large view of the valley below as well as an exterior pool. with a consistent roof height, the arrangement produces a sequence of increasingly tall spaces, thus distinguishing private program from common areas. the structure is composed of a steel framework wrapped in stained-pine cladding. the design pays close attention to finishes, to balance added an added value with cost efficiency.
