The Cubitt House will take on a new form for this year's 'designjunction' event at the London Design Festival. Created by London-based Satellite Architects, the newly designed building will have a facade with a grid-like pattern that incorporates rhomboid mirrors and wild flora.

The concept is interesting in that it combines the sterility of black and white metallic grids and polished mirrors with the unpredictable explosion of natural growths that come from trees, shrubs, and other plants.

The facade's wild grip will also continue to the inside of the Cubitt House. The walls in the building will resemble the grid on the outside, creating a disorienting pattern that can at times be difficult to navigate. This disorientation is intentional, though, as it will encourage viewers to abandon navigation and focus on the designs throughout the exhibit.
