BBC Television Centre Kiosk
David Kohn Architects proposed a family of three totem-like structures that stand at the entrance to Television Centre. Their playful form and pattern references the BBC’s Testcard F, an iconic image designed to calibrate television sets that aired from 1967 to 1999, as well as the geometries of the iconic BBC building. The structures house a coffee kiosk, ice cream stall and play structure, inviting children to this corner of the site and symbolising TV Centre’s transformation from exclusively a place of work to a residential community. The competition was organised by Stanhope in collaboration with AHMM Architects.
