K6 telephone kiosk designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1935.
K6 telephone kiosk, designed in 1935 by Giles Gilbert Scott. It is a standardised design made of cast iron, painted red overall with long horizontal glazing in the door and sides and with applied, rather than perforated, crowns situated on the top panels. There are rectangular, white display signs, reading TELEPHONE beneath the shallow, curved roof. The internal equipment is modern. The kiosk stands on the High Street and has a strong visual relationship with three Grade II listed buildings: Metcalfe House to the north, and North End Cottage and Rose Cottage to the south-east.
The K6 telephone kiosk is a milestone of C20 industrial design. The K6 was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1935 for the General Post Office, on the occasion of King George V's Silver Jubilee. The K6 was a development from his earlier highly successful K2 telephone kiosk design of 1924, of Neo-classical inspiration. The K6 was more streamlined aesthetically, more compact and more cost-effective to mass produce. Sir Giles Gilbert Scott (1880-1960) was one of the most important of modern British architects; his many celebrated commissions include the Anglican cathedral of Liverpool and Battersea power station. The K2 and K6 telephone kiosks can be said to represent a very thoughtful adaptation of architectural tradition to contemporary technological requirements. Well over 70,000 K6s were eventually produced. In the 1960s many were replaced with far plainer kiosk types. But many still remain, and continue to be an iconic feature on Britain's streetscapes.
The K6 telephone kiosk in Everton, designed in 1935 by Giles Gilbert Scott, is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Architectural interest: it is an iconic C20 industrial design
*Group Value: it has a strong visual relationship with three Grade II listed buildings
