This modern cube house, along with others of the same shape form Cube Island, a suburb in Leidsche Rijn (the centre of the Netherlands) where all the houses are designed as cubes. The idea behind the 10x10x10 House is to create maximum spacious experience within a simple cube shape. 123DV architects have divided the three-story floor plan into a narrow long zone of 2,5 x 9,5 meters and a wide zone of 6,5 x 9,5 meters. This result in outspoken places: intimate spaces for bathing and lofty spaces for living and sleeping. The void between the wide and narrow spaces is topped with a roof light. Sunlight can penetrate deep into the house. It also allows 10 meter views towards the sky when entering the living room.
Cube House 10x10x10 from Cube Island
On the ground floor, the open space consists of a vast living area and of an open-plan kitchen. The light comes generously in through a system of sliding doors that run all along the facade.
The kitchen is minimalistic and consists of a tall block set against the wall and of a same-length island, all in white. The big format dark floor tiles create a strong contrast with the white of the kitchen and of the walls.
