The Space

THE MAIN FUNCTION AREA IS LAID OUT AS TWO SPACIOUS ROOMS, DIVIDED BY GIANT BARN-STYLE SLIDING DOORS.
Sapphire 1 is the smaller of the two rooms; at one end fitted with a Fisher and Paykel show kitchen complete with the latest top-end appliances. Its uber-long kitchen bench doubles as a bar complete with bar stools, and it lends itself to the more intimate social gathering; a cocktail party, a cooking demonstration, or a product launch.
Sapphire 2 is the larger room, providing an ideal neutral space to stage a conference, a training seminar or team building exercise. Cleverly, when this area is set up for a formal event, you can then swiftly change the scene; sliding back the doors to reveal a "break out’ room for lunch or an end of proceedings drink!
Sapphire 3 is tucked behind Sapphire 2's white soundproof wall. (ideal for projections or for hanging art).It is a hidden room which can serve as a cloak room, a hair and makeup room, as a place to tuck away any technical equipment, or as a quiet retreat from a wedding function or party.
