Carmody Groarke creates new entrance to BFI Southbank



Carmody Groarke has refurbished the British Film Institute's home on the South Bank in London, with an illuminated new entrance canopy and revamped interior.
The new riverfront entrance is designed to draw greater attention to the BFI Southbank's restaurant, bar and cinemas under Waterloo Bridge.

Carmody Groarke added a large entrance canopy to the building, which stretches the entire width of the bridge and cantilevers out from under it at either end.
"This transformation has revitalised the BFI's identity, which has recessed in recent years, and increased the visibility of the BFI's offer, proudly reconfirming its place as one of the national cultural institutions on the South Bank," said the studio.

"This lateral pavilion, which echoes the look of a classic illuminated cinema top sign, not only radically improves the visibility of BFI Southbank but also creates a new elevated public terrace from which to view the South Bank," said Carmody Groarke.

Made from cast fibreglass, the canopy can be illuminated at night to further increase the building's visibility. It can be programmed to change colour depending on the films showing in the cinemas.
