Without a doubt, one of the most important things in any home or business is the kitchen. It is a place for culinary pursuits, conversation and sharing in general. Many memorable conversations, lunches, farewells and mid-work small-talk sessions have taken place in the chamber’s beloved kitchen. Most importantly, perhaps, there is a Nespresso machine accompanied by a range of flavours to suit every taste in the office. When Roma (flavour no. 8) runs out, however, all hell breaks loose and the chamber descends into near madness until the supply has been replenished.
