Modernist house designed by architect Maurice Aerts in 1928, quite atypical in this street lined with very classic Brussels bourgeois houses.

The facade has horizontal oriel windows of different sizes which give it an interesting rhythm.

Note the "floated" plaster, which was very popular at the time, and the windows framed in carved wood, made by Albert-Philippe Aerts, sculptor and father of the architect.

The green color of the facade and the red woodwork do not seem to be part of the original design, but give the house a strong personality.
