The highly anticipated, five-star Beaumont Hotel opened in London’s Mayfair district in September 2014. The Beaumont is the first hotel by Corbin & King, the London restaurateurs behind such establishments as The Wolseley, The Delaunay and Fischer’s.
Parts of the 73-room hotel date to 1926, and its grand architecture and classic interiors evoke a golden era of design and hospitality.
The most striking element of the Beaumont, however, is ROOM, an inhabitable art structure by renowned sculptor Antony Gormley. Resembling a giant crouching figure, ROOM is an architectural extension to the hotel that serves as both public art and one-of-a-kind accommodation. The ROOM suite’s 13-square-foot bedroom is located inside of the piece of art. The small space’s interior of dark wood and stainless steel give it a simultaneously austere and intimate feel.
