Houston firm Robertson Design masterminded this gorgeous board-formed concrete home—simply, and aptly, named the "Concrete Box House"—in an undisclosed Texas town. Measuring 2,900 square feet, the two-story house comprises box-like volumes, several of which are clad in timber panels. A giant, pivoting door leads from the Zen garden-like grounds to interiors marked by a simplicity of form more commonly found in Japanese residential architecture than in the Lone Star state. Interior courtyards and skylights help keep the minimally fenestrated house light and bright inside. Check it out!
