Here East坐落在伦敦的伊丽莎白女王奥林匹克公园,是由原先的新闻中心和广播中心改造而来的新兴多功能园区。该项目旨在为园区打造具有不同规模和特色的空间,以适应商业、教育和文化领域的广泛使用需求。纵观整个设计,新闻中心和广播中心内部的空间在满足特定功能需求的同时还实现了高度的灵活性。

Here East is a new mixed-use development which re-uses the former Press and Broadcast Centres on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The brief called for spaces of different scales and character across the campus to accommodate the large range of uses in the commercial, education and cultural sectors. Over the course of the design, areas within the press and broadcast centres were allocated for specific uses but with a level of flexibility of use built in.

新闻中心 | Press Centre


Originally designed as a multi-tenanted office building, the Press Centre required a relatively light touch. The original lower ground floor offices facing the canal were split into smaller cafés, restaurant and retail units. The Canalside is now a vibrant retail destination providing amenity to both the campus and local area.

首层空间的层高为夹层的置入提供了可能,从而将Plexal创意中心和Here East管理办公室容纳在内。

The generous height of the ground floor allowed the provision of substantial mezzanines with the Plexal Innovation Centre and the Here East management suite.

广播中心 | Broadcast Centre


The Broadcast Centre required a more dramatic transformation being a 280m long, 140m wide windowless shed with two circa 11m storeys.  A ‘crust and core’ solution was conceived with a 16m deep office ‘crust’ around three sides of the building, working with the existing 8m grid. The non-daylight ‘core’ being appropriate to studios and data centre use.

The ‘crust’ was re-clad to maximise natural daylight into the offices and the building height enabled the installation of 2 interstitial floors of Grade A office space within, increasing net lettable floor area of the building by over 100,000 sqft. To provide clear entrances to the building, and break down the long façades, 5 atria were created with façade height hangar doors and distinctive super graphics applied. The existing floors were cut out to form full height atria and large circular roof lights cut in the roof to further enhance daylight into the space. Generous break-out space and suspended meeting pods were created for use by all office tenants and provide places for informal collaborative or individual working.
