The RIBA Council Chamber is situated on the 4th floor and offers an opulent boardroom setting. The chamber is entered via an anteroom and 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 recent modernisation has introduced air conditioning, an integrated electronic projection screen, centrally programmable lighting, external blinds and a PA system that allows high-quality recording of proceedings.

The Council Chamber offers a perfect setting for VIP boardroom meetings, intimate dinners and drinks receptions.  A standing reception for up to 60 people can be held in the Chamber, its anteroom and the landing. The sunny roof terrace, which overlooks the RIBA British Architectural Library, is also accessible on the same floor, which is ideal for summer receptions.
