After a lifetime of ‘make-do-and-mend’ John Robertson Architects (JRA) gave Bush House its first ever full refurbishment. Requiring over 1,000 site operatives the challenging project saw the accretions of 70 years use as BBC World Service studios stripped back to reveal a 90-year old icon of twenties London, still fit for its original purpose, now reborn to contemporary standards.
Today Bush House and the surrounding buildings have been leased to King's College London and following JRA's initial restoration are being fit out to cater to the needs of a world class university.
Join John Robertson, Principal Director and Angela St Clair-Ford, Project Director leading the JRA fit out team for a tour to discover Bush House’s origins and its future.
