The RIBA Council Chamber offers an opulent boardroom setting, together with the technology, to offer the highest standards of comfort and presentation.
The chamber is entered via an anteroom and presents an imposing sight. The joinery in the room is a wealth of English and Australian walnut and Canadian maple, and includes banquette seating on all four sides. The modernisation has introduced air conditioning, an integrated electronic projection screen, centrally programmable mood lighting, external blinds and a PA system that allows high-quality recording of proceedings.
The chamber can accommodate 20 people seated boardroom or classroom style or 40 theatre style. The perimeter seating can increase capacity by up to 20. A standing reception for up to 60 people can be held in the Chamber, its anteroom and the landing. A large roof terrace, which overlooks the impressive RIBA British Architectural Library, is also accessible on the same floor, which is ideal for summer receptions.
