MB Architecture has taken an unconventional approach to creating this Hamptons summer home. Rather than a traditional stick build, the Amagansett Modular House is made from a series of converted shipping containers. A total of six containers were prefabricated offsite and then assembled at the location in just two days. Arranged around an existing oak tree, the volumes are stacked to create 1,800 square feet of living space that includes four bedrooms, three baths, and a spacious living room with 17-foot walls. While the corrugated metal facade is painted black to fade into the landscape, interiors feature a bright, airy atmosphere with white walls and a generous amount of natural light. Walls of glazing keep the interior connected to the outdoors, highlighting views of the sunset and expanding rooms out to a poolside terrace.
