Office location of the month: The NatWest Media Centre Lords Cricket Ground, London

Lord’s Cricket Ground is widely referred to as the “home of cricket” and is home to the world’s oldest sporting museum. The Lord’s Media Centre is a building at Lord’s Cricket Ground, London which has been awarded the “Best Press Box View” by the Professional Cricketers’ Association.

The centre stands 15 metres above the ground and its sole support comes from the structure around its two lift shafts – it is approximately the same height as the Pavilion directly opposite it on the other side of the ground. The lower tier of the centre provides accommodation for over 100 journalists and the top tier has radio and television commentary boxes. The Building was awarded the RIBA Stirling Prize for architecture in 1999.

Originally sponsored by NatWest, in 2007 sponsorship was taken over by Investec. Since 31 May 2011, the media centre has been sponsored by J.P Morgan.
