London Prism For A Room For London Competition By Atelier 37.2
Prism “A Room for London” by Atelier 37.2 architects shows a hotel room which is inspired by light. The architects’ concept was based on Isaac Newton's particle theory that stated white light was a mixture of all the colours. This extraordinary hotel room is situated on the roof of the Queen Elizabeth hall. The windows are composed of a series of multi-coloured glass panels used in conjunction with wooden slats. The varying lengths match the specific wavelength of each corresponding colour. This Prism hotel room is spacious enough and it is divided into three areas: a bedroom, a living area and a bathroom one. But the peculiar is that there are no doors to separate these areas, so we are looking at a single room with the different pieces of furniture in different parts of it. This sculptural and colourful structure offsets the monochromatic grey building it sits upon. And as you can see on the picture below it can be seen far away adding some brightness to the grey scenery.
