The Centre for Film and Visual Media at Birkbeck, University of London, was completed by Surface Architects in 2007. It includes a state of the art auditorium, seating eighty, academic offices and a highly visual ‘breakout’ area for meetings and events.

Built using a cross laminated structural timber solution, the complex geometries of the scheme were modelled, controlled and checked ‘in silico’ to maintain a set of rigourous output requirements. The demanding parameters resulted in a high impact scheme that has done much to create a sense of identity for the Centre.
