FAT Architects have submitted design plans for a new BBC drama centre at Cardiff Bay, Wales, UK, which is expected to proceed on site if given the go-ahead by the local planning authority.

The scheme will be sited on a 27-acre Roath Basin site owned by the Welsh Assembly Government and be delivered by Igloo Regeneration.

The scheme is the first part of a new digital media hub, masterplanned by strategic design consultancy, DEGW.

The design includes a 300m façade with a decorative precast element of Gothic and space-age quality – a wave motif referring to water, hills and coal.

The new drama centre is expected to double the BBC’s television production in Wales by 2016.
