British Academy of Film & Television Arts (BAFTA) Headquarters

Benedetti Architects

Comprehensive expansion and re-design of the British Academy of Film & Television Arts, Grade-II Listed headquarters at 195 Piccadilly. Expansion includes new top floor by raising & restoring two large Victorian rooflight structures & decorative plasterwork considered ‘lost’ for 40 years, from the original 1883 Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours Gallery.

Proposals enhance BAFTA’s international identity as a centre of excellence for motion picture arts and games; integrating state-of-the-art technology and cost-in-use efficiency while sensitively balancing members’ needs with public access and revenue generation, ensuring the charity’s long-term social, environmental and financial sustainability.
