Architect Antoine Pompe alone signs this part of the Kapelleveld garden city, called in the inventory of architectural heritage, Quartier Pompe II.

In a completely different style from the neighboring Cubist pavilions (designed by Pompe and Huib Hoste), the houses were built in a more traditional English-inspired style, with bricks and tiled roofs.

However, their originality comes from the central span in slight spur, which covers the entire facade up to the roof. One find there the fishbone design pattern between windows dear to Pompe.

Originally this part was painted in two colors, which is no longer the case today.

The windows and doors (unfortunately) have all been replaced with pvc frames and the wooden shutters have been removed.

The city has retained its old charm, with the overall state of conservation being quite good.
