Media entertainment giant, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) invites you to enjoy a sneak peek look behind the scenes of the media brand powerhouse.

Located on a quiet back-street wedged between Camden High Street, Regent’s Canal and Kentish Town Road, visitors will struggle to miss the dazzling rainbow-coloured building occupying the former TV-AM site (just a stone’s throw from the tube station) that houses close to1200 desks and is home to national broadcaster, Channel 5, as well as MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET and more.

Following the acquisition of Channel 5 in 2014, and the need to accommodate many more staff, VIMN UK is proud to show off a new look and feel, following a multi-million-pound extension.  The design brief?  To be anything but ordinary – and they nailed it.

Brimming with vibrancy and creativity, the bright bold frontage highlighting the sweeping curve of the building which mimics the crescent it spans, is enough to bring a smile to the coolest Camden Indie rocker.  Intended to celebrate the pop industrial aesthetic and energy of its locality, a wall of rainbow-coloured fins graduating in colour on the outside shine red, orange, yellow and green when viewed from the west, and from lime green to darker greens to bright blue when viewed from the east. Winning some serious eco points, the office boasts a green living wall, photovoltaic panels and sedum roof.

The office is just as eye-catching on the inside!  Stand-out features include modern, open-plan workstations and breakout areas, two atriums and a large, open flexible space for dining and whole-company meetings alongside the occasional gigs (very MTV!), as well as a series of studios, production rooms and recording and edit suites.  Where else can you eat lunch with a giant moonman swinging above you whilst sipping out of a keep cup watching A-list music and TV talent swishing past?

So, if you’ve ever wondered where the creative minds behind some of the world’s biggest brands, TV shows and characters reside (from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Blind Date and Geordie Shore) take the tour this November (just after you have your picture taken in front of the Lady Gaga art installation in one of several break out areas….but you’ll have to get past the giant SpongeBob SquarePants statue first!)
