BBC Media Cafe

Architect: HOK

The BBC's new London HQ- Broadcasting House had a lot to live up to. The original building is a London landmark described as 'an expression of civilised values'. The new structure is four times the size of the original and has taken over a decade to come to fruition. Costing more than 1bn and involving various architects the project was always going to be a controversial one. The new Broadcasting House consolidates nearly 6000 employees and sees the production of some of the BBC's flagship programmes.

Architects HOK took charge of the project and aimed to create a space that would be a 'celebration of people working together'. The interior is immersed in the BBC's insignia colours of orange and red. The famous newsroom can be viewed from the building's innovative Media Cafe. Open to BBC staff and the public, the cafe ensures visitors can feel a part of the corporation they help to fund. DOMUS' Technical Stone collection in white (DTS QI 231) and Quartz grey (DTS QZ 145) was used in the design of the Media Cafe. Catering for up to 450 people at a time meant the cafe floor had to be hard-wearing. DOMUS specification consultants recommended DOMUS Quartz in a polished finish to create the long lasting, clean finish required.
