In September 2016, designjunction in partnership with King’s Cross and University of the Arts London will move to a new and exciting long-term home – King’s Cross.
This vibrant destination is set to become a new creative district and an international business hub for design in central London– where culture and commerce will come alive during the London Design Festival.

‘The King’s Cross site is the perfect mix of grittiness and shininess, simultaneously a symbol of London’s industrial and engineering past and the creative present.’
Edwin Heathcote, Financial Times
Why King’s Cross?
Over the past decade more than £2.5billion has been invested in the area around King’s Cross with millions more pledged, making it Britain’s coolest and most-connected destination.
King’s Cross has seen one of the largest regeneration projects ever undertaken in the UK. What was once an important industrial heartland is being transformed into one of the most exciting locations in London. With brand new homes, a vibrant shopping quarter, inspiring work spaces, galleries, bars, restaurants, schools and a world-class university.
This September, King’s Cross will become a brand new design district, will become a new permanent home for designjunction and offers unparalleled benefits to visitors and exhibitors.
Huge ongoing investment and regeneration programme.
More than 985 architectural practices within a five-mile radius. The area is populated with high end restaurants, hotels, cultural organisations and creative businesses. These include University of the Arts London, Heatherwick Studio and the Guardian Newspaper only 200 meters away. The number of businesses in the area is set to increase significantly in the coming years.
In the heart of London’s design community
Close to Clerkenwell and Shoreditch.
“King’s Cross is one of the fastest changing areas in central London. A part of town that used to be formerly industrial buildings is now swiftly becoming a buzzing hub for modern offices and state of the art residential blocks, courtesy of its developers”
