A new rooftop events space with a balcony cantilevered above Tooley Street has been launched by the Architecture Foundation to coincide with the London Design Festival.
Skyroom has been commissioned by Roger Zogolovich at Lake Estates, owners of Magdalen House, in collaboration with the Architecture Foundation.
The new structure on the roof of Magdalen House, which provides a mix of covered and open space for up to 60 guests, has been designed by David Kohn Architects.
The concept for the space was inspired by an exchange programme with architects in Istanbul where roof space is a much more important part of buildings than it is in the UK.
Skyroom has a steel structure with copper mesh facades and an ETFE roof. Visitors can enjoy views towards the Tower of London in the north and Strata SE1 in the south.
The Skyroom is available for hire and will also host a programme of public lectures and events.
