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.”

The hotel has developed relationships with Somerset House, LIFT, Create London and the Royal Court Theatre to plan their program.

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.
