Our brief at One Euston Square was to refurbish the existing building for researchers in UCL Engineering, BBC R&D and small start-up companies, alongside partner enterprises such as BBC's Connected Studio Innovation Programme. As well as collaborative, creative workspace, we have provided shared meeting rooms and a test filming suite, bringing all of the necessary facilities into one building. In total, there is space for eighty researchers from all organisations, including lead academics, PhD candidates and interns.
It was important that the environment had a distinctive identity, and we took inspiration from UCL Engineering's brand to inform the interior design scheme, which features striking wall graphics and bold colours throughout. We also held a number of finishes workshops with a specialist furniture supplier, the clients and end users to develop the materials palette.
