BBC MEDIA VILLAGE
White City, London
The BBC Media Village is a major extension of the BBC’s West London headquarters. It provides over 1.5m sq ft of broadcasting facilities, leisure, office and retail space, and an energy centre.
While each building on the site has its own simple geometry, the overall layout is a piece of urban planning with emphasis on the quality of the new public realm. A central plaza draws together major entrances and retail frontages with landscape and routes that connect to the surrounding area.
The two major buildings are clad in aluminium, with interiors of timber, exposed concrete and white plaster. Perimeter buildings are in brick to match the neighbouring residential blocks.
