British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA)
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, built in ‘opposition’ to the Royal Academy across the road.
Facilities include: doubled capacity, two cinema theatres, banqueting hall, multipurpose event and exhibition spaces, members’ bars/restaurant/club, roof terraces, judging/meeting rooms and offices. Our role was to working closely with LAPD lighting consultants, to produce luminiare which would seamlessly integrate into the architecture. To achieve the desired results custom products engineered for this project were manufactured and assembled at our facilities in Essex. We are very proud of the results and to have been part of this exciting project!
