Architecture :: Cubic Houses

If you’re ever in Rotterdam, Netherlands and you find yourself standing amidst an “abstract forrest of houses” you’ve probably come across the neighborhood  of Piet Blom’s Cubic Houses.  Back in the 1970’s, Blom dreamed up this concept of cubed houses representing an abstract tree with triangular living areas inside. The layout is described as having 3 levels, first the living area, the middle bedroom and bathroom, and the top guest room or another living space. I would be curious to look inside if I ever came across these homes, they are extremely unique and intriguing!

What’s the most intriguing architecture that you’ve been able to explore?
