02-SEP-08 K6 Telephone Kiosk
K6 telephone kiosk, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1935. It is painted red and constructed of cast-iron with three glazed sides and a solid rear and has a square plan.
Horizontal and vertical glazing bars divide each glazed side into eight panes with flanking narrow margin lights. The Soane- inspired domed roof adorns the arched heads of each side, with a crown in relief above glazed panels inscribed with the word 'TELEPHONE'.
Modern telephone equipment has replaced the original.
The K6 telephone kiosk was introduced in 1935 to celebrate the silver jubilee of King George V. It was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, and was a smaller version of his earlier kiosks, the K2 (1924) and K3 (c.1930). The design of the K6 kiosk was influenced by the Neo-classical works of Sir John Soane, and with 70,000 constructed became one of the most iconic mass-produced structures of the C20.
