A TV and media centre opened at The London Stock Exchange this week, with environmental design carried out by At Large.
At Large, which worked on the Money Zone of the Millennium Dome, was briefed to design the graphics for the new centre, based in the Old Broad Street home of the LSE.
“We decided to bring in At Large to design a fantastic backdrop for the centre. This whole thing has been design-led,” says HBL Media partner Geoff Beattie from the broadcast consultancy which appointed the design group.
The LSE’s main broadcast and presentation area features a 3D graphic of the City of London seen from south of the River Thames. There are also three large data screens and a map of major world indices installed in the new facilities, as well as an electronic ticker tape system displaying live stock prices.
A second area has been designed for TV journalists reporting financial news, with a series of London backdrops and five large date screens.
As the project progressed, At Large was asked to look at interior design for the centre, situated above the main LSE entrance.
