Former Olympic Broadcast Centre at Here East

The transformation of the former Olympic Broadcast Centre at Here East is now almost complete. The vision is to create a 1.2 million square foot technical, digital and creative centre in East London alongside new facilities for UCL, Loughborough University and Hackney Community College.

Lang+Fulton’s Stretto-11 has been extensively used within the entrance atriums. Custom sized fascia and soffit panels conceal services on each level, each soffit panel hinged for easy access. The three main entrance atriums along the west facade have been themed to reflect the factories and warehouses that once occupied the site. Architects, Hawkins Brown comment: ‘The concept was to unpeel the existing cladding and expose the true industrial and contextual heritage’.
