The Dutch architect Piet Blom designed the cube houses in Rotterdam, Netherlands in the 1970s.
The innovative design was meant to make the most of the available space, as well as feel like a village in the heart of the city. Each of the 39 houses has three floors with a living room bathroom, kitchen and two bedrooms, and the walls and windows are sloped at almost 55 degrees. One house was converted into a show home by the owner because of attention from passersby.
Several cube homes were converted into a hostel in 2009. There are similar cube residences in Helmond in the Netherlands, and Toronto.Places nearby:
