  • K2 Space worked with leading Japanese pharmaceutical company Santen to design and build their new UK headquarters in a unique rural setting, located in St. Albans, England.

    The colourful and vibrant 2,500 Sq. Ft space is designed to provide staff with a variety of alternate work settings and primarily, a comfortable space where they enjoy working.

    Having moved from serviced offices, Santen wanted to create a space that reflected their brand values and culture – somewhere to call home. K2 Space worked closely with their team to develop the design with a key focus on workplace wellbeing, maximising natural light and bringing elements of nature into the space.

    The new space includes open plan working for up to 20 staff including a number of hot desk positions, two large meeting rooms for team meetings and an informal breakout area which has proven popular with staff. There is also a compact private space designed for staff on conference or video calls.
