DS(3)2 Trip to Walymer's Yard by Peter S
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 other 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. 
The desire for spaces to be light-filled, friendly, sustainable, considering materiality, views and the relationship to its surroundings is at the heart of everything we do at​ Room 102.
