BBC Broadcasting House Phase 2
In 2011 the BBC will begin to broadcast from their new headquarters off Oxford Circus in London. Located next to the existing Broadcasting House, the building is set to become a landmark in Central London and a familiar sight to viewers around the world, forming the backdrop to television broadcasts. It is a key project in the BBC’s strategy to rationalise its property portfolio by 2020.
Set over 13 floors, with a combined area of 50,000m², the building will house all of the BBC’s radio, news and World Service programmes. The project was delivered within budget and has provided the BBC with a building which is a suitable home for the world’s most famous broadcasting corporation.
The internal architecture has been carefully designed to be as efficient as possible, delivering a high quality work environment which has maximised the building’s tight footprint and will allow for future flexibility. Large light-filled atria, dramatic staircases and colourful exposed lift shafts are some of the architectural features which enliven the building, inspiring and uplifting visitors and staff alike.
The newsroom is one of the largest in the world and is the central focus of the building. It is flooded with light and is visible from a new public bar along Portland Street, giving the public an unparalleled view of the fast-paced world of the live news broadcasting.
Sheppard Robson was appointed as the architect for the project in November 2005 and was tasked with redesigning the original MacCormac Jamieson Prichard design from Stage C.
