Designed in 1926 by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott and chosen by the Royal Fine Arts Commission, the K2 is the original red telephone kiosk. It has been an enduring presence at the heart of London, bearing witness through a Blitz, the changes of the Sixties and Royal and State occasions.
Too expensive for national use, the Post Office produced them exclusively for the London area. Its imposing elegance is influenced by the tomb of architect Sir John Soame. Larger and more ornate than later kiosks, the pierced crown and circular vented ceiling show how the practical can also be stylish.This classically inspired masterpiece has seen service under three Kings and our reigning Queen and all examples still on
the street are preserved as Listed buildings by English Heritage.
We can exclusively offer the highest quality restoration complete with our outstanding Jubilee Interior.
