5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

A very interesting place, I did not think that a place so small can be utilised so well. Only €3 to get in the museum and have a look around although the steps are quite steep so my little girl refused to go up.

“Interesting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

If you can, just go and have a look! :) From the outside it's very nice and interesting, but you'll be very surprised if you'll go inside the museum house (it's 3pounds pp), 'cause it's bigger than you can imagine!

“A different type of architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

These are cubes houses, very impressive from outside and very interesting inside. You can visit one of the houses and understand how the space inside can be optimize. It is really interesting and another way of thinking the living space. In addition, being the city on average very new, these building are really in line with the style!

“Can we have more of this please?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Definitely worth a visit. These houses are exactly the kind of architecture I would like to see more often in a modern city: experiencing them gives a very warm feeling, and the setup does a lot to encourage human interaction. There are 39 houses together with an interior courtyard, which also gives a nice view of the nearby Het Potlood building. Only one cube can be visited (the other are functioning apartments), but its interior is pretty impressive. There's more space than you would think, and the shape of the room makes for some really awesome window placements. It would be a lot of fun to contemplate a storm from the top floor.

Bottom line, I highly recommend spending 3 Euros (2 for students) to go inside. But even if you're really poor or cheap, there's a lot to see from the outside!

This was certainly interesting, outside was certainly impressive. Built in early 80s I imagine it was very modern at the time. But it has lost some of the sparkle. €3 is acceptable for the 10min you will spend there.
