Built in 1936, by architect Adrien Blomme in the Dutch-influenced Modernist style.

The sponsor was the owner of “Tabacs Van der Elst”, who had plans to build several similar buildings in the rue Meyerbeer, an ambition that did not materialize.

The plans for the building were the subject of much discussion with town planning at the time, due to the non-alignment with the rest of the street by this concave v-shaped recess.

In the end, Adrien Blomme won.

As a result, the apartments benefit from a great deal of light thanks to the additional windows allowed by this original plan.
