Georges Hobé came late to architecture, he was a cabinetmaker, specialized in Art Nouveau furniture.

He signed this house at the age of 50!

The facade, made of white stones and bricks, plays with shapes, windows and round doors at street level, then on the first floor, a spur oriel topped by a pointed balcony.

The facade is punctuated with geometric designs, and ends with an impressive rounded gable.

The entrance door and its semi-circular arch are particularly neat.

The whole is in fairly good condition.
