• The Residence Palace complex was built between 1922 and 1927 by the Swiss architect Michel Polak as an early attempt to develop prestigious collective housing near the centre of the town. After a short-lived commercial success, the building was transformed into an office building by the Belgian state and at the end of 1960's a new section and facade were added to the rear of the building, on the rue de la Loi side. The original facades as well as the entrance halls are listed today among the protected historical built heritage of the town.

Following the official land-use guidelines, the extension of the building is planned on the north-east side with two new facades to convert the L-shaped building into a 'cube'. The enclosed court forms a large atrium that hosts the main entrance hall as well as providing the necessary volume for the new conference.
