dc.descriptionDetail of oval parking security building on the north side of the building, looking west; Houses the personal offices of the Chancellor (head of the German Federal Government) and the Chancellery staff. Built in concrete and glass in an essentially postmodern style, though some elements of modernist style are evident. Occupying 12,000 square meters (129,166 square feet), it is also one of the largest government headquarters buildings in the world. By comparison, the new Chancellery building is eight times the size of the White House. A semi-official Chancellor's apartment is located on the top floor of the building, although only one Chancellor has lived there so far. Parliamentary committees and subcommittees, public hearings and faction meetings take place in three auxiliary buildings, which surround the Reichstag building: the Jakob-Kaiser-Haus, Paul-Löbe-Haus and Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders-Haus.
