ITN Headquarters
200 Grays Inn Road
London WC1
United Kingdom

The site for the new headquarters of ITN (Independent Television News, the news service for the UK's commercial television stations) had previously belonged to The Times newspaper, and included a vast basement area for the printing presses. The Foster design exploits this space using a full height atrium descending into the underground levels, bringing light down and creating a rather dizzying effect for visitors peering down from the top floor walkways.

The building is described in detail on the Foster and Partners web site.


Photographs Jay Berman, 1998

How to visit

The ITN building is on the east side of Grays Inn Road, 5-10 minutes' walk north of Chancery Lane underground station or south of King's Cross main line and underground station.
