BBC reveals new Singapore location

The new office is 614 sq ft bigger than the previous one.

The new joint office for BBC Studios and BBC Global News, designed and built in partnership with Singapore-based commercial design and build company Conexus Studio, was completed in late 2020, a statement read.

Located at 18 Robinson in the Central Business District, the new 6,491 sq ft office space is 614 sq ft larger than the previous location at Springleaf Tower. This represented a “significant move” for BBC operations in Singapore, switching from a fixed desk setup to a more agile setting.

According to Conexus Studio’s design director Aviruth Trungtreechart, the new office space was “a strategic mix of formal and informal, and individual and group working spaces in turn inspire, rejuvenate, as well as balance personal productivity with collaboration.”

The new office has two main featured areas: the energetic pantry to the left of the entrance and the more subdued back office to the right. Natural motifs taken from the local Singaporean context were also incorporated into its design for a more authentic feel.

“Our new office really reflects the BBC and our bold British Creativity,” said Ryan Shiotani, SVP and general manager, South and Southeast Asia, for BBC Studios.
