For the second year in a row ID:SR Sheppard Robson has won the British Council for Offices National Award for Fit Out of Workplace - this year for BBC Central Square, Cymru, Wales, following on last year's win for Deloitte 1 New Street Square.

BBC Central Square, Cymru, Wales is a project designed to shape the broadcaster’s future, supporting major investment in Welsh broadcasting whilst acting as a magnet for the best creative talent and promoting new standards for inclusivity.

The new BBC Cymru Wales headquarters reveals a close connection to audience and community. The new headquarters, and the diverse range of spaces within, has been designed to shape the broadcaster’s future, supporting major investment in Welsh broadcasting whilst acting as a magnet for the best creative talent.

The headquarters are defined by a civic quality, with the public welcomed into the ground floor where they can observe content being created first-hand from a ‘street’ that runs through the building. Colour ‘pixel’ blocks are visible from the atrium, animating the central space whilst expressing the digital culture of the organisation. Colourful elements lead the eye up through the bustling floors, with the exposed services visible and illustrating how the design knits together high-performance infrastructure and locally-crafted materials.
