A Room for London

New temporary Southbank icon is London's most desirable hotel room...

In a year where London’s hotel rooms will be some of the most sought after – and expensive – in the world, there’s one solitary room that is surely more desirable than any other. A Room for London is an utterly, utterly unique one-bedroom installation on the roof of Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, and without a shadow of a doubt is the most fabulously original room you could wish to spend a night in the capital this year; the first 6 months of its 12 month span selling out immediately. Inspired by the riverboat that novelist Joseph Conrad captained in the Congo, David Kohn Architects and artist Fiona Banner‘s collaboration with Living Architecture and Artangel, perches high above the Thames and guests are invited to reflect upon their experience, logging all that they see, hear and feel.

The peerless viewpoint over one of the world’s iconic skylines looks like the result of a particularly artistic freak-storm, and is not just the city’s number one room, but yet another cultural landmark for the year of the London 2012 Games. The second stage of bookings – for nights in July to December – starts from 19th of this month; it truly is the chance of a lifetime, so be quick. Very quick…
