It's great that there is a display unit in this building because they're amazing to see from the outside. The inside is equally interesting, although very small, and I wouldn't want to live in one.

This unusual 1980's housing development was designed by Amsterdam architect Piet Blom. The houses are at angles and look unstable, so it was fascinating to visit one of the houses to see how the space is used and how the furniture fits. The houses are built around an inner courtyard which has several shops, giving it a community feel.

A very interesting place to visit while staying at Rotterdam. You have to see how different design affects the space inside the house and ponder on the furniture decisions.

Good for a one time visit just to confuse your mind a little bit. Very nice to visit and see how you can make the most of angular spaces, but I can't imagine living there.

From the outside, you wonder if it will all crash down on you. Amazing architecture. And what people can do with small spaces like that. One of Rotterdam's all time attraction. Unique and Intriguing.
