Forget over-hyped coworking spaces and Ikea-hacked offices, the new HQ for U.K. personal finance site money.co.uk is the one to rule them all. Taking over a renovated Victorian castle (!), the 10,000-square-foot space is chock full of glitzy colors, over-the-top themed rooms, and cheeky design details.
The force behind the jaw-dropping project is company founder Chris Morling, who spent more than $3.7 million on the renovation of the Barracks at Cecily Hill, a nationally protected historic building. Morling brought on celebrity interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen to transform the former training and educational building into a workers’ wonderland.
The two collaborated with company employees and workspace designers at Interaction, coming up with vibrantly themed spaces—like a steampunk bathroom, pop art meeting space, and playful, open kitchen.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Llwelyn-Bowen described the office as a “very, very nurturing Narnia. And Chris is Mr. Tumnus.” Anyway! Here’s a look inside.
