There’s a reason why they call it the Box House — it’s really as small as a box. But there’s also a reason why we’re left drooling — its design makes the most of the space while remaining uncluttered and elegant at all times. To balance the textures of concrete the house incorporates plenty of glass which also serves to create a visually spacious and well-ventilated interior. Concrete and glass a winner again!

It’s a trend to bring the outdoors in; and it seems to be a trend to opt for exposed concrete walls that are good insulators (keeps you colder in summer and warmer in winter) and amazing eye-catchers. As with other properties before this Beach House on Long Island is majestic warm and inviting all at once. Not to mention the house has a little bit of zaniness that makes it even more appealing.
The exterior of the house takes its inspiration from Japanese design as clean lines and a semi-minimalist approach give the structure a very unique understated style. Exposed concrete is combined with warm wooden surfaces to create an inviting setting. Once inside large pendant light installations exquisite decor and a cool color palette take over. One can’t help but notice an unmistakable Asian style indoors as stylish wooden accents offer the necessary textural contrast.
