Cubic Houses (Kubus woningen) (Rotterdam, Netherlands)

Location: Overblaak 70, 3011 MH Rotterdam, Netherlands

Dates: 1982 - 1984

Architect: Piet Blom

Purpose: housing complex

More info: The original idea of these cubic houses came about in the 1970s. The concept behind these houses is that Piet Blom tries to create a forest by each cube representing an abstract tree; therefore the whole village becomes a forest. The cubes contain the living areas, which are split into three levels. The triangle-shaped lower level contains the living area. The middle level contains the sleeping area and a bathroom, while the top level, also in a triangular shape, is used as either an extra bedroom or a living space.
