Refurbishment of Iconic BAFTA at 195 Piccadilly Reaches Completion

Harley Haddow are delighted to announce that the extensive refurbishment of BAFTA’s iconic headquarters has reached completion. Over the last few years, we have had the privilege of working alongside the skilled and talented teams in the delivery of the comprehensive improvements and expansion of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Grade II listed headquarters at 195 Piccadilly in London.

By improving facilities and doubling the building’s capacity, the redevelopment will enable BAFTA to dramatically increase its charitable programme. 195 Piccadilly will be a creative centre for film, games and television and the central hub for BAFTA’s UK-wide, and global, learning and talent development programme. A world-leading independent arts charity, BAFTA works throughout the year to find and promote the next generation of talent and to break down the barriers that can make it hard to build careers in the creative industries.

We are incredibly proud to have been involved in what has been a truly remarkable and unique project. The outcome is a credit to all of those who have been involved and we are grateful to our team for all of their hard work in the years that led to this milestone.

 

About BAFTA

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is a world-leading independent arts charity that brings the very best work in film, games and television to public attention and supports the growth of creative talent in the UK and internationally.

The redevelopment of 195 Piccadilly will enable BAFTA to dramatically increase this support. It will double the building’s capacity, install state-of-the-art technology throughout and create an entire floor devoted to BAFTA’s learning and new talent programmes, enabling BAFTA to support over 80,000 people to develop a career in the creative industries each year. 195 Piccadilly will formally open in 2022.
