Which other countries (if any) have a specific, famous office for their heads of government, comparable to the Oval Office for the President of the United States?

I'm a government geek, and sometimes get to wondering -- Where does the Prime Minister of the UK work? How about Sweden? Or Russia? Or China? Yes, they all have famous buildings where the head of government works (respectively Number 10 Downing St, Rosenbad, the Kremlin, Zhongnanhai), but I can't think of an office that any of them has that's comparable.
In other words, I'm not curious about the equivalent of the White House. I'm curious about the specific equivalent to the Oval Office.
