Birkbeck Centre for Film and Visual Media
LOCATION : LONDON
CLIENT : BIRKBECK COLLEGE
COMPLETED: FEBRUARY 2007
The Centre is a prestigious research facility within the School of History of Art, Film and Visual Media. Located within a Grade II listed terrace once occupied by Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury Group, the project is a refurbishment of the basement, ground floor and the utilitarian 1970’s extension. It includes a unique ‘state of the art’ 80 seat cinema auditorium, media study suite, seminar/tutorial rooms and offices for academics. The Centre is our most intense formal and visual expression built to date. The vibrant interconnected spaces have a rich conceptual design, the logic of which has been carried through to the detail.
