A Room With a View

It should feel slightly daring to be in this space; not dangerous but a definite shift from normality, a juxtaposition of the familiar pushed into a new context. Uninitiated onlookers will wonder what it is at first: purely a sculpture or something more? On their daily commute they can see how it changes in the light: reflecting conditions and giving new perspectives. They will become aware it is occupied which can only add to the intrigue.

Guests will become more comfortable over time as they absorb their new surroundings. Initial concerns about exposure give way to the possibilities offered by their temporary home. How often will you get to lie in bed as the sun rises over the London skyline all around you? Or lie in darkness and observe the city at night?
