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.
