Roald Dahl

Warm and Inviting Design

K2 Space was appointed to design and refurbish the West End office of the Roald Dahl Family Company, which oversees the literary and creative legacy of the beloved children’s author. The brief was to create a space that reflected the character of the man himself – warm, friendly, quirky and fun.

Comfortable space

We hired K2 to transform our office space in to something unique, but also in a way that has never been seen before. It was a big ask, but they managed to exceed every expectation we had... Five stars, two thumbs up!

Fostering Collaboration and Creativity

The office space was designed to encourage collaboration and creativity, with meeting rooms and break-out areas that foster a sense of community and openness. The overall design is meant to feel like a home away from home, with warm lighting, plush furnishings, and playful elements like a wall mural of characters from Dahl’s books.

Replica of Roald Dahl's Garden Shed

One of the key features of the design was a replica of Roald Dahl’s garden shed hideaway, where he did much of his writing of children’s storybooks. As a nod to the famous hut, we meticulously recreated an indoor version of it, complete with a thatched roof and vintage typewriter, and placed it in the centre of the office as a focal point. The shed is a symbol of creativity and imagination and pays homage to the author’s enduring legacy.

Unique and Inspiring Workspace

The finished office space is a testament to Roald Dahl’s enduring legacy, and a tribute to the man himself. It captures his warmth, creativity, and sense of fun, while also providing a functional and productive workspace for the 20 people who work there. K2 Space successfully translated the client’s vision into reality, creating a space that is both unique and inspiring.
