New Zealand Parliament Buildings

The main building of the complex is Parliament House, containing the Debating Chamber, Speaker's Office, Visitors' Centre and committee rooms.

The "Beehive" is a ten story building built as an extension of Parliament House, and it is occupied by the Executive Wing. The top floor is occupied by the Cabinet room, with the Prime Minister's offices on the floor immediately below. Other floors contain the office of individual ministers and various function rooms occupy the first three floors.

Completed in 1899, the Parliamentary Library is the oldest of the buildings. It stands to the north of Parliament House.

A multi-storey office building across Bowen Street from the Beehive, Bowen House houses MPs' offices and support staff. It is connected to the rest of the parliamentary complex by a tunnel under Bowen Street.
