Kubuswoningen or cube houses in Rotterdam are one of the most interesting modern architectures I saw here in the Netherlands. The designer of these modern houses is Architect Piet Blom. His design represents a village within the city. Each house symbolizes a tree and many houses together form a forest.
Each house is split into three levels: the first level is the living room and the kitchen, the second level contains the bedroom and the toilet, the third level can be used for other things, like for example it can be transformed into a recreational area or an extra little bedroom for kids.
These 38 cube houses are located on Overblaak Street, just beside the Blaak Subway Station, also nearby the old Rotterdam harbor. This modern architecture attracts many foreign and local tourists every year. Its charisma is very astonishing.
We went inside the complex and I saw different shapes and angles. It was quiet and you will actually not feel that you are in the city. I am really curious how is it to live inside the house. One cube house is open for viewing. It costs 2 euro per person. Unluckily because we were going to be late with our appointment, we did not have a chance to come and look inside.
Do you wish to live in one of these houses? We asked someone who just came inside the open house. It costs about 200, 000 euro. Pricey for a little house, but this masterpiece is already a monument, it just deserves a worthy price.
