The RTE Radio Centre in Dublin has a better structured way of their studios. Their radio centre is located not far from the RTE Television Centre, meaning radio and television close by. Opened in 1973 and is still the main headquarters of RTE Radio (for the time being at least, we can never be sure with regards to RTE budget plans).
The radio centre has 13 studios, all based underground to ensure better quality sound. Studio 1 is the largest studio and used for radio dramas and concerts etc, with the remaining 12 studios based around Studio 1.
The RTE Radio Centre is only two floors, one about ground and the one below ground - a perfect simple way to have a radio centre, and not the badly mixed bag of studios the New Broadcasting House has in London. Shame when they built the new extension, they never considered simplicity in the form of structure, as it does seems the radio studios are all mixed through in that vast complex.
I think you are way off the mark here.
The radio studios in NBH are exactly where they need to be - they’re located beside where the production teams actually work.
Comparing RTÉ and BBC is a nonsense given the difference in size and output.
