In the purest “expo 58” style, here is Raoul J. Brunswyck’s personal home, built in 1957.
He designed a simple facade, between two uprights of white stone, with a bel-etage above a large garage.
A beautiful oblique awning, supported by a V-leg, protects the entrance.
This one is decorated with a panel made of irregular Val St Lambert crystals.
The architect liked to decorate his entrances with original works, very characteristic of the 1950s. This one is particularly creative.
The flat roof and the wide overhanging cornice are also characteristic of this period.
Remarkable: the frames, the entrance door and the aluminum garage door are all original.
The houses built by Brunswyck were very successful, there are many of them in this part of Brussels, but not all have survived the passage of time.
