Client Objectives

The network’s dedicated United Kingdom news channel, RT UK, was launched in October 2014. It airs live and pre-recorded original programming to UK audiences. Before the launch of RT UK, RT’s London-based operations comprised a newsroom only. RT UK needed a bigger office space to accommodate new studios, and took a lease on the 17th floor of Millbank, the iconic 1960s office tower designed by architect Ronald Ward.

The Project

Interactive Space was appointed to carry out the design and fit-out of the Millbank office. RT UK’s brief was to make much of the space open-plan, and to locate a multi-camera studio with a high-tech production gallery, a single camera studio and edit suites. A key element of our role was to adapt a conventional office floor plate to be suitable for the specific needs of live broadcasting including studio lighting, camera rigs and reflective glass.
