The name of the company - Room 102 -
is a reference to George Orwell’s ‘Room 101’,
featured in his novel 1984. Room 101 is a place
in which a prisoner is subjected to his or her
own worst nightmare, fear or phobia.
In contrast 'Room 102’ is our imaginary next room
along and the complete opposite - a space filled with
the inhabitant's every hope, dream and desire.
This desire for spaces to be fulfilling, intuitive and
aesthetically pleasing is at the heart of everything
we do at Room 102.
Room 102 has won many awards, such as the
competition for the public art sculpture 'The Swirl'
in Didcot, which was successfully completed in
2014 and have been selected for 'The Open 100'
We see architecture as a great opportunity to improve the quality of peoples' lives.
We work closely with our clients with careful attention to their individual requirements. Working collaboratively with stakeholders involved, we pride ourselves in our ability to communicate clearly and effectively with the whole team.
