• New Nato HQ Looks Smart and Ready for Action

    30 November 2017

    The builders have turned over to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation its new headquarters in Brussels, designed by SOM+ Assar Architects.

    The design is based on interlocked fingers, a symbol of unity among NATO members. The design called for the practical yet decorative Renson Linius wall and façade cladding system. Extruded aluminium blades are mounted invisibly on vertical supports, giving a sober appearance.

    Vertical and horizontal sun protection blocks with new Icarus shield-shaped blades were specially developed by Renson for the staff centre of the new NATO HQ. The design is in keeping with the sober look of the building. And Renson Icarus Plano blades mounted on loggia frames provide dynamic protection from the sun to make the climate inside the southern guardhouse comfortable.
