Дома-Кубы Пита Блома, Роттердам


Cube houses (Dutch: Kubuswoningen) are a set of innovative houses built in Rotterdam and Helmond in the Netherlands, designed by architect Piet Blom and based on the concept of "living as an urban roof": high density housing with sufficient space on the ground level, since its main purpose is to optimise the space inside. Blom tilted the cube of a conventional house 45 degrees, and rested it upon a hexagon-shaped pylon. His design represents a village within a city, where each house represents a tree, and all the houses together, a forest. The central idea of the cube houses around the world is mainly optimizing the space, as a house, to a better distribution of the rooms inside.
Кубические дома или Дома-Кубы (нидерл. Kubuswoning) — ряд домов, построенных в Роттердаме и Хелмонде по проекту архитектора Пита Блома в 1984 году. В Роттердаме дома стоят на улице Оверблаак, недалеко от одноименной станции метро. В Роттердаме есть 38 таких домов и ещё 2 супер-куба, причём все дома сочленены в единое сооружение. Радикальным решением Блома было то, что он установил куб дома не на грань, как обычно, а на вершину, и этой вершиной он опирается (зрительно) на шестигранный пилон.
