Designed by architect-engineer Albert Dosveldt in 1906, one on avenue Albert, the other on avenue Molière, they constituted with the corner building of the same style and design a beautiful architectural ensemble.
The large private mansion located at the corner gave way to a “modern” building in 1963, of great banality and today quite outdated.
The two houses on either side have fortunately resisted the promoters pickaxe...
They are in good condition, and bear witness to this particular geometric Art Nouveau style. The two facades differ in detail by the shapes of the windows, and the design of the woodwork.
They both have that beautiful horseshoe arch window typical of the Art Nouveau years.
Orange, white and green glazed bricks (which have stood the test of time well) punctuate the façades alternating with blue stone.
