The project for the new NATO permanent headquarters in Brussels has a total surface area of 251.980 m² divided into 8 large wings, 4 small wings, an agora, a conference centre, an information centre, a staff centre (consisting of facilities such as a restaurant, sports and leisure installations, a bank and shops).
