Located in the heart of Europe, Brussels brings together so many different cultures. This capital has no architectural style of its own like Paris, shaped by Hausmann or London, with its Nash-style terraces and crescents.
In Brussels, all styles are mixed in an admirable and creative architectural cacophony where the worst can rub shoulders with the best.
This site has no other claims than to make you discover the most admirable facades of Brussels, built in the 20th century: private houses, mansions, trade or office buildings, public, civil, cultural and religious buildings. Art Nouveau, Art-Deco, eclecticism, modernism, streamline, international, so many different styles. Buildings that can only be admired from the street like those that can be visited.
Whether you are Brussels citizen, Belgian or foreigner, resident or tourist, take advantage of this site to look at Brussels differently, discovering it with your nose in the air, the Art Nouveau ironwork, the modernist rhythms, the astonishing shapes of the windows, the stained glass, Art Deco carved stones, sgraffito and colored tiles and even street numbers, letter boxes, door handles,… all these elements so creative and significant of their time.
We hope that this visit in pictures will encourage you to go and discover, in real life, these admirable facades.
