A Room for LondonThree years after it was originally built as a temporary structure, A Room For London is set to stay open for another year due to overwhelming popularity. The 'room' in question looks very much like a boat which has been washed up by a storm and beached on the roof of the Southbank Centre's Queen Elizabeth Hall. It is, in fact a one-bedroom installation, available to rent (via a ballot) by members of the public for night-long stays throughout the year. The ship, designed by David Kohn Architects in collaboration with the artist Fiona Banner, provides views of The Shard from the shower, wraparound windows and a roof dreck with two pairs of binoculars, providing endless people watching opportunities of those strolling along the South Bank below.

 

About Southbank Centre: Queen Elizabeth Hall

Queen Elizabeth Hall is the second largest concert hall at Southbank Centre, presenting a diverse programme that covers the whole range of music and performing arts. The Royal Festival Hall's smaller sister venue Queen Elizabeth Hall ensures that even when there is a long-running show, the Southbank Centre can have almost nightly performances by world-class orchestras.
