It houses Aga Khan Foundation UK, Aga Khan University Institute for the study of Muslim Civilisations, and the Institute of Ismaili Studies. The large 9-floor block in the King's Cross redevelopment was designed by Fumihiko Maki, a Japanese architect. It features small gardens in Islamic tradition, some as balconies, some as roof gardens.
