London Media & Broadcasting Centre

Working closely with Encompass Digital Media and the Hawk Media Partnership, the practice designed and implemented a scheme for the London Media Centre in Chiswick. This prestigious global facility broadcasts 24/7 365 days a year hosting the BBC, Sony and Disney, amongst other broadcasters. An important part of the brief was that the facility remained operational throughout the build and a rapid build programme was adhered to in order to prevent any disruption.

A novel ‘panoramic’ design was developed meaning managers could, at a glance, see across the whole facility and providing operatives with the ability to view multiple suspended screens from their workstation. A viewing gallery, for potential customers, and a central ‘bridge’ accommodating team leaders were key elements of the design.
