An arts hotel designed to “inspire creativity” is opening in London.
Green Rooms will be a four-storey hotel dedicated to the theatre and the arts, with 20 double rooms, two studio apartments and two dormitory rooms which each sleep 12 people.
It will act as a creative hub, hosting artists and encouraging exhibitions, events and performances.
Developer Nick Hartwright said: “Green Rooms will be a real creative hub, and there’s a genuine need and want for it.
“I’m heavily involved in the worlds of art and culture, and over the years artists that I’ve worked with – from the UK and across the world – have spoken about how there aren’t any cool and collaborative hotels in the capital that they’d like to stay in.
“Green Rooms changes that.”
It will include a free monthly programme of cultural events, artist in residence opportunities, and even a rotational restaurant residency for upcoming chefs,
The hotel will be located in North London in Wood Green, and rooms start from £18.
Mr Hartwright added: “London is an expensive place to stay in, and I’m fully aware of the fact that a lot of people making their way in the creative industries don’t have a lot of disposable income.
“Even so called ‘budget hotels’ charge anywhere in excess of £100 per night for a double room, which is a lot of money, and these tend to be bland, formulaic places.
“Our doubles start at £50.00 per night, and they’re all stylishly kitted out, and a bit different.”
Green Rooms is expected to open in Spring 2016.
