Large apartment building built in 1986-87 by architects Jean-Pierre Blondel and Odette Filipone. Very innovative facade at a time when apartment buildings still took shape in a very uniform way.

La Galaxie residence, in reference to the nearby Royal Observatory of Belgium, has two irregular facades made up of bay windows, terraces and balconies that stand out.

Beautiful contrasts between the white painted walls and the dark woodwork.

The large cylindrical green ceramic planters placed freely animate the rear facade.
