Surface Architects won this commpetition to design  the permanent home of the Film & Visual Research Center in the Birkbeck College.

They transformed the basement, ground floor and the extension into a unique 80 seat cinema auditorium, surrounded by a media study suite, seminar rooms and offices. The beak-out spaces and stairway are an exuberant display of pure form and color.

The Centre is a prestigious research facility within the School Of History of Art, film and visual media. Its located within a Grade 2 listed terrace once occupied by Virginia woolf and the Bloomsbury Group. They transformed the basement, ground flour and the extension into a unique 80 seat cinema auditorium, surrounded by a media and study suite, seminar rooms and offices for the academics.

The beak-out spaces and stairway are an exuberant display of pure form and color as you can see on the pictures.
