The Berlaymont  is an office building in Brussels, that houses the headquarters of the European Commission, which is the executive of the European Union (EU).  It is a large cross-shaped building with a newly renovated modern exterior that features movable window blinds that let in light and control temperatures in the offices and is located in the area known as the "European District".

As of 2005, all members of the Barroso Commission and their cabinets (private offices) are based in the Berlaymont. The office of the President of the Europe an Commission and the Commission boardroom are on the 13th floor, together with the meeting room of the Hebdo and the restaurant La Convivialité. The Secretariat General, Legal Service and other central services of the Commission are also based in the building.
