Amazing Stoneworks – Cube Housing

This week, my interest has been peaked by cube housing in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The houses, designed by Piet Blom, are designed to ‘furnish’ a pedestrian bridge covering a busy street in the centre of the city. The houses are based on the idea of a tree, where by a ‘canopy’ is created underneath which can be used for children to play in for example. You can see this effect in one of the images below, the houses leave only a very small area of light between them at the top but a much larger usable area at the base. This has implications for light and space.

These houses again refer to an architects apparent need to mirror the natural world in what could be mundane architecture. It would seem that this is a theme running through the amazing stoneworks series of posts. It will certainly be interesting to see if this theme continues.
