A new one-bedroom, maritime-themed 'hotel' installation, which forms part of the London 2012 Festival, has opened at the Southbank Centre's Queen Elizabeth Hall in London.

Located on the roof of the venue, A Room for London has been designed by David Kohn Architects in conjunction with Fiona Banner following a global design contest.

The winning boat-shape design offers panoramic views of the River Thames from Big Ben to St Paul's Cathedral, and is sold out to new guests until the end of June.

Bookings for July until the end of the year are due to go on sale on 19 January, with up to two people able to spend a night. The 'hotel' boasts a bedroom, a kitchenette and a library.

McLennan acted as project manager on the scheme, while Boyden Group, Price and Myers, Max Fordham, contractor Millimetre, Alimak Hek and Miele were also involved.

A spokesperson said: "Guests are invited to rest and reflect upon what they see and hear during their one night stay; logging their thoughts, observing cloud patterns, the character of the river and deeper undercurrents."
