Sea Container’s London, South Bank, London
Set in the cruise ship-inspired Sea Containers House overlooking the River Thames, this ultra-chic hotel in the vibrant South Bank district is a 9-minute walk from the Tate Modern art gallery and 6 minutes’ walk from Southwark tube station. The property exhibits one-of-a-kind interior design, with a unqiue layout and oppulent, contemproray colour pallette that inlcudes jade green, golds, blush pink, cream, copper. Large artworks/sculpture – often set around a nautical theme – play a big role in the communal areas of the property and its other spaces which include a luxurious spa, spacious lobby on the ground floor (with the walls designed to be reminiscent of a ship’s hull), restaurants, cafes, bars and reception areas. Lots of unique props – some historical some modern and conceptual are dotted throughout the property. The bar on the top floor of the property is substantial and includes a roof terrace area with stunning views of the City of London (St. Paul’s Cathedral, Blackfrairs bridge, a view across the River Thames). Below ground level are a number of spaces – including one large space that can be split in to three individual rooms accoridngly to how big or small the event or shoot may be; it is easy to achieve black out here/control the light – the sub street level space includes lobby and also houses a modern, intimate cinema space for screenings. Vintage movie posters and props decorate the walls in the basement level areas. Jewell coloured desinger furniture can be seen throught the property, making great accessories for fashion photography and anyone looking for pops of colour for a film, photo shoot or event.
