Kijk-Kubus, Rotterdam

3.6
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.

  • Such an interesting place to visit in Rotterdam. Architecture is fascinating. You can go inside one of the cube houses for 3 euros each. It will show you what it’s like to live in one of the houses and has some interesting facts too. If you’re there, make sure you stop by the market hall opposite!
  • Very cool to see the different architecture in the city. Make sure you get here early though because it closes at 6pm. I definitely recommend going inside because you really can't appreciate the unique spaces from outside.
