Owen House / Christopher HL Owen

This 131 square metre, three bedroom, two bath contemporary in Rhode Island is located on Block Island, a vacation retreat 22km east of Montauk Point, and it was designed in 1975 by architect Christopher HL Owen. It received an American Institute of Architects First Honour Award for Best Vacation House, in no small part thanks to the property’s sweeping island views. But the design is also intriguing—curving, elongated towers sit on either side of walls of windows that make the centre of the home look like a glassy jewellery box. 924 Off Coast Guard Road is on the market now for $1,650,000 — via Curbed
