Royal Academy of Arts, Gallery and Rooftop Offices


407 Ra Office 02

Following the completion of the Offices Refurbishment project the practice was appointed to carry out a further project to provide new rooftop offices, and an envir­on­mentally controlled gallery space and lifts, following a fire which destroyed an existing gallery ceiling and roof. 

This project involved rebuilding the roof above one of the principal galleries with a new structure, the insertion of two new passenger lifts through 5 storeys of historic structure and the creation of a 2 storey core at roof level linking into different levels of the existing building. The building remained occupied throughout the course of the contract.

This project also included refur­bishment of other upper floor office spaces and gallery spaces to provide additional workspaces required for decant space needed to enable subsequent phases of the RA’s development masterplan.
