“Kubus woning / Cube House”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

While in Rotterdam visit this cluster of cube houses situated near the Oude Haven ("Old Harbor"), Blaak train/subway station, the public library and the 'Pencil'. You'll be fascinated by the architecture ranging from "Old Rotterdam" to "New Rotterdam".

“Museum House - New kind of space in these flats”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

The cube houses were designed by Piet Blom. He saw his design as a tree and the entire complex as a forest. Piet wanted to develop a village within a large city: a safe haven where various different functions could take place.

The Kijk-Kubus (Museum House) is a fully furnished show home in the Blaakse Bos, an unusual collection of cube-shaped homes. The interior was specially developed to give visitors an impression of how it’s possible to live in a cube house with sloping walls. Scale models, photo panels and a screen provide visitors with extra information.

You can stay here in hostel/hotel. See you stayokay rotterdam cube hostel: http://www.stayokay.com/en/hostel/rotterdam
