Kijk-Kubus (Show-Cube), Rotterdam

Inspirock Rating:
2.8/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web
Designed to resemble an "urban forest" in which the top of each house represents a tree, Kijk-Kubus (Show-Cube) 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.

  • Yes ... So unusual accommodations that after not long stay at the lodge, head is gone. For this accommodation requires good vestibular apparatus and the absence of claustrophobia, a sober lifestyle. No wonder this accommodation for students and newlyweds without children.

  • 從火車站出來,就可以看到這一排非常醒目的奇特建築,巧妙的利用方塊空間,真佩服設計師的巧思,也很難想像屋內該如何擺設與裝潢?可以花費3歐入內參觀,因時間的關係而作罷,存了個疑惑在心中。 
  • Visit original, curious, outdoors in the tourist zone outdoor activities that can be done together with the Markthal.
