The David Chipperfield Masterplan will see the refurbishment of the two Grade II* Listed buildings, namely Burlington House and 6 Burlington Gardens.
A central public link will connect the two buildings allowing the Royal Academy to extend its programme into 6 Burlington Gardens and to provide better visitor and back of house facilities in Burlington House. The public link will also reveal the "behind the scenes" workings of the institution.
The Phase 1 Masterplan is now fully funded, procured and well advanced on site, with completion scheduled for 2018 - the 250th anniversary of the Royal Academy.
G&T's role is now evolving to focus on the Phase 2 Masterplan projects which are due to start on site between 2019 and 2023.
