The bedroom of this unique suite occupies the interior of a giant semi-abstract sculpture by Antony Gormley, which dominates the entrance front of The Beaumont on Brown Hart Gardens.
A dark, mysterious, cave-like space, ROOM encourages its occupants to enter a different state of consciousness, to enjoy at the very least a quiet, meditative pause, a prelude to a good night's sleep and the chance to withdraw, for a while, from the busy world outside.
The wood-panelled bedroom is approached up stairs from the sitting room and the marble bathroom, which are decorated, like all the rooms in The Beaumont, in a soft Art Deco style. The suite is 69 square metres (745 square feet) in size, and also has a large private hallway and a guest bathroom.

Gormley's ROOM is both a monumental sculpture and an architectural extension to the hotel. The interior, which forms the dark oak-clad bedroom of a one-bedroom suite, is approached up nine white marble steps, separated by a black velvet curtain from a pure white marble bathroom. It makes a striking juxtaposition to the stainless steel exterior, which represents a giant crouching cuboid figure based on the artist's body.
"I take the body as our primary habitat. ROOM contrasts a visible exterior of a body formed from large rectangular masses with an inner experience. The interior of ROOM is only 4 metres square but 10 metres high: intimate at body level, but open above.
The idea was to reveal this slowly. I wanted to structure night as a preamble to sleeping and dreaming, and reinforce the feeling of being fully enclosed so the window only gives a view of the sky. At night, the shutters allow total enclosure and provide total blackout. The very subliminal levels of light allow me to sculpt darkness itself. My ambition for this work is that it should confront the monumental with the most personal, intimate experience."
