A Vibrant Workplace for Carlton Books

To achieve this, K2 Space utilized a wide range of colorful and playful finishes and furnishings throughout the space, including unique lighting features, quirky wallpaper, and bold accent colors. The new design concept allowed staff to work in a variety of settings, including meeting rooms, breakout spaces, and individual workstations.

Showroom and Bespoke Bookshelves

One of the standout features of the new office is the dedicated showroom on the ground floor, which showcases Carlton Books’ latest and most popular publications. This impressive space features bespoke bookshelves, unique artwork, and vibrant accent lighting, creating a striking and welcoming environment for guests and clients.

Staff and Visitors Love the New Space

Given that Carlton Books remained in occupation throughout the project, K2 Space had to work closely with the client and carefully plan all works to minimize disruption to their business operations. Noisy or disruptive works were scheduled outside of business hours or on weekends to ensure normal activities were not adversely affected.

Modern meeting rooms with colourful accents

The Result

The result is a dynamic and playful workspace that reflects the Carlton Books brand and provides a flexible and comfortable environment for their staff to work and collaborate. The new space has since been praised by staff and visitors alike, providing a memorable and enjoyable experience for all.
