We had walked among the cube houses and really enjoyed their odd shape and innovative architecture, but this open-house allows you to enter and explore one of these unique homes yourself. It really is worth the small entrance fee, although it can get quite busy. The house is really like no-where else.

Visually exciting exteriors enclose unusual - but interesting - unusual layouts. With views all around Rotterdam

I didn't get a chance to go inside but these strange little cube houses are an icon of Rotterdam. They are situated just across the way from the market hall and are easy to spot because of their distinctive yellow colour. There is one that I believe you can rent as a holiday home. Something to stop by and marvel... More

A concept of urban dwelling aiming to save space in densely populated cities. Conventional stilt houses rotated 45 degrees to achieve the objective. Soft primrose yellow seemingly at odds with futuristic shapes yet works to prove the concept, all but one apartments are residential.

These buildings are amazing and architectural genius! The cost to go inside is 3 euros each, you won't spend that long inside (probably about 15-20 mins), but it's worth it just for an insight of what these beautiful buildings look like inside.

Not so attractive to pay for walk in. Easy transport by metro and near to Mathal market. Good photo location from the outside.

Already very interesting and nice to watch from the outside, also the inside of the cube house is well worth a visit. Seeing how the architect managed to create living space, inside a cube that's pointed down, with diagonal walls, is mind-blowing !

Paalwoningen, kuniswoningen, blaakse bos If you like architecture you'll have to visit these cube-houses. There even is a youthhostel in it. Next to the markthal and undergroundstation Blaak, you'll find a house where nothing is as you've ever seen in housing.
