Didn't get a chance to visit inside due to being late evening when we arrived but pictures don't do this architect any justice, when you first see them peeping out from behind the trees they truly are stunning and give a different perspective considering the light and it's insane you can drive under them and one side will be in...

The actual show cube was very underwhelming, but I highly recommend walking through the whole Cube house community, which also serves as an overpass to walk over the main road at Blaak station. I entered on Blaak station side, and especially loves the view exiting on the Old Harbor side, where you can see beautiful old buildings, boats, and a... More

These houses are well worth a visit if you are in Rotterdam. You can look around the outside for free - or go into the show house for 3 Euros.

One of the cubic houses houses a museum which you can enter to see for yourself what it must be like to live in a cubic house. A small museum, our children enjoyed it!

Interesting place to visit, you have to keep your eye out on the entrance, Would've been nice if more thoroughly fitted out with furniture but definitely got my juices going and wanting to stay in one. Whole concept is very clever

Quirky and different living quarters. Interesting to see how the cubes are decorated with furniture and how the kitchen and living rooms are designed. Very very unusual.

Very interesting building, but apartment itself lacked the wow factor. The conceptual living was calling for some interesting furniture and decoration ideas. Although satisfied with seeing the planning, felt like in my head I was kitting it out much up to date and level the building was calling for. Would recommend to see it, but it would be nice to...

Very interesting take on modern living. The house is well presented and helps visitors understand the concepts. Maybe a bit expensive for a limited attraction.

I really love the architecture, but to be honest nothing special inside the house. But you will experienced the inside of the interesting building
