A new property startup named Cube Haus is looking to alter the existing housing market, offering high-value homes at reasonable prices “that can be configured to fit small and awkward urban sites.” To do this, Cube Haus is commissioning a team of Britain’s top architects and designers: Adjaye Associates, Faye ToogoodCarl Turner Architects and Skene Catling de la Peña. The team will create a series of customizable modular homes with a focus on outstanding design.

The Cube Haus proposal presents the people who might never have considered using an architect with the opportunity to work with renowned contemporary practices, making innovative architecture and design more accessible. The houses will “either be commissioned and installed by Cube Haus on sites that the company acquires”, or they will be available for purchase as a possible solution for self-builders. The variability of a modular design will allow the houses to be configured to fit any shape or size of urban land plot.

Co-director of Cube Haus Philip Bueno de Mesquita says of the potential of this initiative, “The aim is to build up a portfolio of building types that ultimately can be scaled up for sites that can accommodate a bigger number of units. That’s when it starts to get really interesting: affordable housing designed by some of the most exciting names working in architecture today.”

While this initiative from Cube Haus will not likely solve the problem with affordable housing altogether, it is an exciting approach that makes the work of world-class architects and designers available to the masses.

This is an enhanced rendering of the metal version of the Cesta and has its own specific features.

A blend of the firm and the
