Mobile reading room for Broadgate’s Literary Greats season

10/05/16

 

Broadgate celebrates the anniversaries of some of Britain‘s literary greats with a modular built Reading Room in Finsbury Avenue Square.

 

The ‘off the shelf’ Losberger modular event space provides a welcoming reading retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. Broadgate is a 30 acre fully managed business campus in the heart of London's Square Mile, owned in a 50:50 joint venture with British Land and GIC. 

 

Each season Broadgate, home to some of the world’s biggest corporations, host a different campaign. This spring Broadgate are celebrating Literary Greats, a programme of events to mark the anniversaries of some of Britain's most well-known playwrights, authors and poets.

 

As part of the Literary Greats season Broadgate have commissioned a unique space in Finsbury Avenue Square; The Broadgate Reading Room. This innovative ‘off the shelf’ temporary event building is a ‘plug in and play’ modular system installed by Losberger.

 
The event space has the look and feel of a contemporary high quality permanent building but was delivered and assembled in just 6 hours. Its modularity means you can add additional sections to increase the size of the 30sqm room in 6m x 2.5m increments. Another great advantage of these modular buildings is that they are stack-able; meaning you can add a second level and even a roof terrace. The shape and speed of installation means these glass fronted units are perfect for this type of city centre event, easy to brand, install and customise.

 

The Reading Room is open to the 30,000 or so people who work at Broadgate every day until the 20th of May, as well as those visiting or passing though. The reading room provides a comfortable and relaxing retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Members of the public can enjoy a little quiet time to read and be inspired, with access to books by famous greats, latest chart toppers and commuter favourites. As well as the quiet retreat of the Reading Room, Broadgate are also offering literary events throughout the season, including live performances and book readings to new literary inspired menus in their restaurants.
