The Cubic Houses aim to balance the client's wish for a large amount of squaremeters with the envisioned character of urban life in the new neigbourhooddevelopment. The result is a design that breaks down the building volume into several individual ‘cubes’ - stacked on top of each other. The configuration of cubes reflects the rhythm of a human scale and works against stretches of street with no human activity. The design adapts to the overall scale of the neighbourhood and aims at a varied and lively atmosphere along the central canal.
