Kijk-Kubus, Rotterdam

3.7
Designed to resemble an "urban forest" in which the top of each house represents a tree, Kijk-Kubus serves today as the display piece for one of Holland's most unorthodox buildings. The brainchild of architect Piet Blom, the housing unit was constructed in 1977 and has since become a recognizable landmark of modern Rotterdam. Visit the museum house and wander through the living quarters, spread out across three stories and complete with angled windows and oddly-shaped floor plans. Despite the unusual visual appearance within, the cube has many ordinary furnishings intended to demonstrate that life within could still be perfectly normal. You can easily access the houses by subway, as they sit above the Blaak station.

  • An incredible, amazing and unforgettable experience... it almost took away all other experiences of visiting Rotterdam. These houses are amazing to look at and leaves us wondering where these are places to live but once you enter a house, they are very much of a personal place and cosy to live with all amenities. It’s an experience to see them once to understand the architect’s imagination and successful implementation.
  • The landmark of Rotterdam, I would say. This unique architectural masterpiece is really standout in the city port of Rotterdam. All the cubes here are all functional buildings. The color and texture of each cubes are similar. I couldn’t tell much from an architectural point of view, but you have to visit his place when you’re in Rotterdam
