Projects > BAFTA Headquarters
We were appointed as sub-consultants to Benedetti Architects working as part of a collaborative team on the refurbishment and expansion of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts grade II listed headquarters at 195 Piccadilly.
The extensive refurbishment scheme sets about to enhances BAFTA’s identity as an international centre of excellence for the motion picture arts, and to balance members’ needs with extra revenue generation to ensure long-term financial sustainability for the charity.
The expansion proposals included the reintegration of the large unused historic roof-light spaces from the building’s original purpose as the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours.
Other facilities included cinema theatres, banqueting hall, multipurpose event spaces, members’ bar, restaurant and club, meeting rooms, administration and staff offices and two terraces overlooking Piccadilly and the Grade I listed St James Church.
