Before going to the Netherlands, I randomly searched for cute things in Netherlands and I found these cube houses on one of the searches. These cube houses (or kubuswoningen) are set of houses with a 45 degree tilt, located in Rotterdam near the Blaak Subway Station.
The cube houses were designed by Piet Blom, his concept was ‘living as an urban roof’. There are about 38 small cubes and two super-cubes.
When we got out of the subway station, it didn’t take too much time to find them since were just right across. I would say that they are truly a work of art. It kind of reminds me of my geometry plus art class in high school – the cubes and futuristic design. Unfortunately, when I got there it was too late for the open house tour.
Also, it is possible to stay at these houses via StayOkay. The location is perfect with historic areas, bars, restaurants and cafes.
