Text description provided by the architects. Cube island is 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.

The floorplan of three stories is divided in a narrow long zone of 2,5 x 9,5 meters and a wide zone of 6,5 x 9,5 meters. This results 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.
