The Union Buildings were built from light sandstone and designed by the Sir Herbert Baker in the English monumental style. The Buildings are over 275 m long and a semi-circular shape, with the two wings at the sides that represent the union of a formerly divided people. (English and Afrikaans).

Requiring over 1,265 workers over 3 years to build, the structure was completed in 1913.
Today, the official seat of the South African government and also the offices of the President of South Africa.
