Stripping-out and enabling work has begun on our comprehensive improvements and expansion of BAFTA’s Grade II Listed headquarters at 195 Piccadilly. 

Originally built in 1883 as galleries and multi-purpose event spaces for the Royal institute of Painters in Water Colours, a medium then over-looked by the neighbouring Royal Academy of Arts across Piccadilly, the building is being completely transformed as the centre of excellence for the moving image arts in film, television and games.
