This fully detached four-bedroom contemporary house is favourably located on a quiet street in Finsbury, London, within a short walk of Angel and King’s Cross. Cube House was designed by architect Rashid Ali.

Description by Modern House: Internal accommodation measures approximately 2,100 sq ft. Upon entering, the visitor is immediately presented with a dramatic blue steel staircase. To one side is the kitchen and breakfast room, with Corian worktops and full-height glazed sliding doors to a narrow decked garden, which wraps around the property on three sides. To the other side of the staircase is a large reception room, which also opens onto the garden. A poured-resin floor, shadow gaps and neutral colours create a calm and refined atmosphere.

The name of the KINZA cafe displays a culinary direction, combining spices and herbs of Spain, France and Bali. It is worth paying due attention to the choice of location, since the institution is located in the corner part of the street, where there is constant traffic, and the number of people wishing to visit the new place was already considerable even during the shooting of the object.
