NATO Headquarters

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill en tant que Architectes.

Like fingers interlaced in a symbolic clasp of unity and mutual interdependence, the design for this international treaty organization headquarters represents its changing mission from opposition and prevention to unification and integration. Designed in association with the Bruxelles, Belgium based firm Assar Architects, this landmark provides each member-nation with embassy-level security and privacy while also providing shared space where national representatives can meet as partners in the pursuit of peace and comity. Flexible office layouts and shared amenities yield an Office Urbanism that brings nations together

New NATO Headquarters

Assar Architects en tant que Architectes.

NATO is building a new headquarters because the current headquarters is at the end of its economic lifespan and is costly and labor intensive to maintain. The decision to replace the existing headquarters was taken at the Washington Summit in 1999.

The new headquarters will provide space for: • 28 embassies from NATO nations • 1,550 NATO nation delegates; • 1,700 NATO international staff (civilian & military) • 800 staff from NATO agencies • Currently, an average of 500 visitors per day

Benefits • The new headquarters will be a unique opportunity to transform NATO business practices to achieve smarter and more effective new ways of working. • It will improve the level of physical protection. • The new HQ will be a step change in terms of working conditions and with modern facilities.
