BBC North – new office of BBC, a design project which developed the architectural studio ID: SR. Creative HQ is located in Greater Manchester (UK), aims to make the world-renowned company more intimate and open it to a large audience.
Spacious rooms, the area of which amounted to 31.5 thousand square meters, became the most ambitious project in the history of the BBC. The open plan seeks to unite staff and create a democratic collegial atmosphere.
Positive and ultra-modern space headquarters is equipped with the latest technological innovations and can work as a studio space, providing an interesting backdrop for the creation of various programs. There will also be conducted meetings, workshops, testing and research.
Flexible spaces are equipped with digital technology and easy adjusted to perform many different functions.
Large-scale headquarters designed for large numbers of staff. It is planned that by April 2012, in the BBC’s new office will work 2300 people, and by the end of 2017, 1,000 people will join them.
Since the inception of the bold and bright project, the BBC showed initiative to support local production and use of local products. 73% of the materials, involved in the creative decor of the space, produced in the UK with the involvement of local talent and skill using the national traditions.
