BOX Living (www.boxliving.co.nz) built this beach house in Wellington using their post and beam construction system. The system uses engineered timber posts and beams with stainless steel cross-braces.
The BOX building system is inspired by the Case Study House program which used steel to create simple, elegant forms, open spans and large areas of glazing.
This particular house has four bedrooms, two roof decks and one covered deck. Materials included rusticated weatherboards, vitex timber balustrades and decking, oak flooring and plywood cabinetry.
