Vienna-based architect Veech x Veech has designed the new headquarters and broadcast studios for Al Jazeera Media Network, in London’s Shard building.

The practice says the project featured “the complex task of configuring a fully functioning TV studio within the confines of a predetermined floorplate”.

It adds: “Problematic low ceilings were transformed into a feature of the on-air appearance, working within and around a complex network of structural beams to create a totally different kind of space that will define the studio’s on-air identity.”
