London, UK

  • 13 Hectares
  • Masterplan complete
  • AL_A

Sky asked AL_A to create a vision for a new media campus that reflected the workings of the organisation and was connected by the assets that drive the business forward: creativity and people.

The layout is designed to welcome Sky’s visitors and audiences, revealing the culture and spaces of the business. Food, landscape, amenities and meeting spaces all become intuitive ways of bringing people together, promoting chance encounters across the workforce and the collision of talent across every strata of the business. Extensive landscaping surrounds the buildings, alongside cafes, restaurants, convenience stores, allotments and sports facilities to bring these spaces to life.

This transparency is mirrored in a building typology where all the functions of the business are gathered under a single roof, with production and entertainment placed at the heart of the buildings and made explicit to everyone. These open and flexible spaces are designed in clusters of neighbourhoods to accommodate a new type of creative industry, where the traditional distinctions between creative, technical, production and corporate have been broken down.
