79 Examples of Cubic Architecture

From Contemporary Cubic Living Quarters to Compact Cube Homes

— August 28, 2013 — Art & Design
These examples of cubic architecture are beautifully showcasing that modern designs and contemporary appeal can be just as easily accomplished with a compact geometric structure.

While some people enjoy the aspect of large and luxurious homes and structures, these cubic architectural designs are more for those who are interested in simple and compact spaces, just big enough to provide all the necessary things you need. From cubic cliffside shacks to cubic fairytale architecture, these simple geometric structures will definitely provide a modern way of living without taking up too much space.

Definitely not suitable for those who feel claustrophobic in tight spaces, these cubic architecture designs are showcasing that simple, minimalist exteriors can be sufficiently achieved with a small and compact framework.
