Cube Haus is breaking new ground in the property market by creating a new path to owning your own architect-designed home.
Our background is in running unorthodox, creative companies, but we have always loved great architecture. We looked around and realised that there was an opportunity for an ethical developer model that would break new ground by marrying some of the awkward urban spaces we often come across unexpectedly in the city with great looking sustainable homes.
We have commissioning some of Britain’s top architects and designers to create a series of outstanding modular concepts: Adjaye Associates, (whose principal David Adjaye was knighted in 2017 for his services to architecture), Faye Toogood (celebrated interior, furniture and fashion designer), Carl Turner Architects (winner of the RIBA Manser Medal for the Slip House) and Skene Catling de la Peña (winner of the RIBA 2015 House of the Year award for the Flint House).
The Cube Haus delivery model creates economies of scale that make innovative architectural design very accessible: people who might never have considered using an architect, let alone a renowned contemporary practice, will be able to do so.
Philip Bueno de Mesquita
Philip has run his own businesses for the past 30 years. His career has been dedicated to great design. In the early 90s he founded a sneaker brand Acupuncture Footwear which sold in 40 countries, and he is a director of his wife’s international luxury fashion label Roksanda, which he helped launch in 2005. Working alongside award-winning architects, Philip has built two renowned houses in central London – The Lost House in Kings Cross by renowned architecture practice Adjaye Associates and the Cube House in Clerkenwell. He champions the technology which has made it far easier to create custom high-end, factory-built houses in steel and timber.
Paul worked within the creative industries for over 25 years before co-launching Land Converter. He previously founded and ran the award-winning creative agency pd3, which specialises in cultural marketing and works with leading UK and international brands such as O2, including the Memory Project and iconic architect and designer Jason Bruges and the Sony T5 project with renowned architectural design agency Nicolas Alexander. Paul sold the agency in 2013 and invested his business acumen and creative vision into his passion: combining original design with new processes, materials and technologies to transform unused spaces into beautiful and functional living spaces.
Nicola Kelly, MSc, MRICS
Nicola joined Cube Haus after thirty plus years in the construction contracting industry, having worked in a variety of roles in three of the largest UK and international contractors, both in major projects across all sectors and at business executive level. Having known Philip and Paul for many years, Nicola is particularly excited by joining the Cube Haus evolution into curating, developing, and delivering innovative designs for urban areas using a self-build model accessible to people who would otherwise find the development and construction process daunting. Her expertise ensures that the new home client enjoys a journey which is burden-free and efficiently packaged for that client. As a Central London and urban dweller herself, Nicola is passionate about shifting urban housing design expectations into an environment of attractive modernity, addressing energy efficiency and quality in construction.
