M's Conference RoomThis is a featured page


Featured in:

Art Director:
  • Ken Adam

Purpose:
  • M's conference room at MI6 is large enough to accommodate large briefings for the heads of state as well as the entire Double-0 section.

Description:
  • Impressive in scope and purpose, M's conference room is a large auditorium which can be purposed to host briefings of all sizes and types.
  • Secure, hi-tech, yet classically ornate, the large tapestries and paintings disguise a variety of maps, screens and status boards. The conference room also contains all manner of communication, both within MI6 and around the world, making it the ultimate Situation Room.
  • There's even room to brief all nine members of the exclusive 00 branch of MI6 simultaneously in a major crisis of world-wide implications.

Trivia:

  • As with its counterpart at SPECTRE headquarters, Ken Adam designed the conference room with simplicity in mind, so much so that he was worried that he might have taken the strategy too far.
  • Ever notice that both Emilio Largo and James Bond are late for their respective briefings at their headquarters? It only serves to show that the two players are evenly matched and have much in common.
