Cube Houses (Kubuswoningen) Tours

Cube Houses (Kubuswoningen)
Revolutionary architect Piet Blom designed and developed Rotterdam’s collection of 40 innovative cube houses in 1984, each of which has a giant yellow and gray tilted, wooden cube balancing on top of the ground level. The houses were built to resemble trees in a forest and to present an alternative to high-density urban living. Blom took the Ponte Vecchio in Florence as his inspiration for the structures and included public areas below and private living spaces above in the cubes. These bizarre apartments are centered around a courtyard playground and lean at an angle of 45 degrees over the buzzy waterfront bars and restaurants of Oude Haven. The whole complex sits on top of a pedestrian bridge over a busy road.

Inside, the houses have three stories and myriad angled walls with plenty of light pouring in from the sloping, triangular, plate-glass windows. The rooms are also triangular, which makes furniture design especially tricky. Each unit consists of a living space on the first floor, two bedrooms and a bathroom on the second and a workspace or sun lounge on the top floor.
Two of the larger cube houses have been transformed into a funky hostel for tourists, but the three-floor Show Cube (KijkKubus) is a fully furnished pod open to impress visitors with the crazy planes and slopes of its interior.

Practical Information:

The Cube Houses are on Overblaak at Oude Haven. Entrance to the Show Cube costs €2.50, and it is open daily from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. Paid parking is available in the Kiphof or Oude Haven public parking lots, but neither have the option to pay with cash.
Address: Kijk-kubus Overblaak 70, Rotterdam 3011 MH, Netherlands
Admission: €2.50

Rotterdam: Small Public Group Tour from AmsterdamHistorical & Heritage Tours

Rotterdam: Small Public Group Tour from Amsterdam

star-5
Visit Rotterdam, an important harbor city located in the province of South Holland. The city is (inter)nationally known for its innovative architecture. In May 1940 the city center was heavily bombed and it was decided to redesign instead of rebuilding the city as it once was. Now, a new city has arisen with according to many the most impressive skyline in the Netherlands and maybe even in Europe. Set off on a one-hour guided walking tour, passing by the Old Harbor with its beautiful historical ships and the ‘forest’ of 38 cube-shaped apartments on hexagonal pylons. The walking tour ends at the markthal, one of the city’s signature buildings, where you have some free time for your own explorations or to grab a bite. A 15-min transfer takes you to the Erasmus Bridge, from where you take the boat for a 75-min tour of the harbor. Be amazed by the impressive skyline with imposing buildings, unique views of yards, docks and the ultramodern handling of thousands of containers.
