What a fantastic repurposing of public space by Lovefone!
Check out the full write-up from Dezeen.
While keeping the outside intact, Lovefone has retrofitted the phone booth with a workspace for a single repairperson.
Designed by Battersea Power Station architect Giles Gilbert Scott, the red phone booths are internationally recognised symbols of British culture but have been rendered obsolete by the rise of mobile technology.
In recent years, the booths – some 2000 of which are heritage listed – have been adapted for new uses like micro work spaces, sandwich shops, libraries and galleries.
