BBC Broadcasting HouseEdit profile
The project is a refurbish of Broadcasting House at Portland Place in London and the construction of 653,000 sq ft of new buildings to provide state of the art radio and TV broadcasting facilities for BBC Radio and Music, BBC World Service and BBC News. The development will when complete be the largest live broadcasting centre in the world. The original architects’ brief included making the best use of space in Broadcasting House, including the original 1930s Grade II* listed building and its extensions. It also involved redeveloping two “eyesore” 1960s office blocks, Egton House and 16 Langham Street, that sit alongside, and to find ways of opening up the site to the public.
