A bridge of cube houses
The complex of cube houses straddles a major artery in Rotterdam.
Entering the Forest of Cube Houses
The houses are constructed like trees, with sheltered space beneath.
One of Several Sets of Stairs
The stairs are very vertical and twisty. Moving day must be a nightmare.
Cube House Kitchen
The kitchen was surprisingly "normal" and functional.
A door to the terrace has gravity working against it.
No Refunds for Cut-Off Fingers
You can't say they didn't warn you: a sign asks that people please not open the terrace door. Because of the angle of the wall, it will slam shut again like a guillotine.
Cube House Style
The Cube Houses were built in the 80s, but the wacky angles and "modern" look felt more like the 70s to me. Here's the top floor garden room.
Lounging in the Cube House
On the top floor, there's a low sofa tucked into a corner. It feels like sitting in a spaceship!
