Formally "Silver Birch Design", have recently completed a major refurbishment of the iconic BBC Maida Vale Studios.

 

Working with fit out company Overbury PLC, the project has involved the creation of a new Main Reception, Café, Green Room and Artists’ Lounge, as well as refurbishment works to the various recording studios.

BBC Maida Vale is the home of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. It can hold more than 150 musicians, a choir of over 100 and an audience of 220.

It was famously home to John Peel's BBC Radio 1 Peel Sessions, and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, famed for its realisation of the Doctor Who theme tune.

 

The Beatles also performed at the studios on several occasions.

The designs for the project are inspired by the visualisation of sound and the repetition of the number seven, representing the seven notes in the musical scale.

 

The reception and café design have a clean modern feel, whereas the refurbishments of the recording studios retain the historic look and feel of the spaces.
