Located in a field in the gently rolling rural landscape of upstate New York, the Cube House is a simple cube-shaped building built from precast concrete blockwork.
Created by Simon Ungers (the son of the German famed architect Oswald Mathias Ungers), this offbeat home monolithic form and lack of ornament challenges the distinction between sculpture and utility.
An apparently random pattern of windows punctuates the facade, contrasting with the regularity of the buildings form. A metal staircase runs up the side of the building, allowing the uncovered roof terrace to be accessed from either the ground-floor patio or the first floor.
