Annals of architecture .... the cubus houses, Rotterdam

The architect Piet Blom designed these three floor cubic buildings in 1984.
The living space is rather limited. The rooms concentrate around a narrow, almost vertical central staircase.
My daughters, however, liked it a lot and asked to buy the one on sale. 200.000 Euro seems a fair price for dutch standards. But how about the furniture, which has to be specially adapted to the walls?
There are two a little verandas shared with the neighbouring houses. However, there is a big problem... the doors easily fall shut
Drastic warnings are supposed to be necessary to prevent cut-off fingers
