UK phone boxes to be made into mini-offices

UK phone boxes to be made into mini-offices

October 25, 2016

The micro-offices will have a printer and a wireless mouse as well as a 25-inch screen.

Camden New Journal reported that since the death of the public phone due to mobile devices, the red British phone booths have long stood unused. However, rather than them being consigned to history museums, they are being recycled as micro-offices. Five booths in the area of Hampstead and Highgate, London, will be converted, and one will become a “mobile phone repair shop” which will be run by a technician, and there are plans for other phone booths too, including a “mystery retail unit”.

The organisation behind the idea are the charitable trust Thinking Outside The Box, who will “donate a percentage of their earnings” from the converted red booths to homeless projects. The trust have sent documents to the Town Hall stating that the need for public telephones is now obsolete and that they wish to “reinvent their use for the 21st century”.

A quote from the document said “this is a scheme to convert a number of disused iconic BT kiosks into small advertising pods or small self-contained retail outlets, selling ice cream, coffee and other products suited to street sale”.
