Best secret service building.

New construction of "Bundesnachichtendienst" in Berlin.

The new BND secret service monster on the Chausseestraße in the middle of Berlin. The property is ten acres in size and the main building is nine stories high. The office area measures 260,000 square feet. This is equivalent to 35 football fields.
The first 170 BND employees (of 4000) attracted this week into the BND headquarters .

The Doughnut (GCHQ), Cheltenham, UK

The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is a British intelligence agency responsible for providing signals intelligence (SIGINT) and information assurance to the British government and armed forces. Based in "The Doughnut", in the suburbs of Cheltenham, it operates under the formal direction of the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) alongside the Security Service (MI5), the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) and Defence Intelligence (DI). GCHQ is the responsibility of the UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, but it is not a part of the Foreign Office and its Director ranks as a Permanent Secretary.

SIS Building (MI6), London, UK

The headquarters of the British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) (also known as "MI6"), at Vauxhall Cross, is located at 85 Albert Embankment in Vauxhall, a south western part of central London, on the bank of the River Thames beside Vauxhall Bridge. It is known within the intelligence community as "Legoland" and also "Babylon-on-Thames" due to its resemblance to an ancient Babylonian ziggurat.

I find "The Doughnut" also best. It's a bit like an oversized donut.

^ ^So I like the British Secret Intelligence Service and the Government Communications Headquarters at best.
Maybe even the NSA Hauptquatier.

The Communications Security Establishment in Canada I find rather a bit boring.
