Monumental building in the Modernist-Paquebot style, built in 1938/39 by young architect Robert Rousseau, just graduated from the Institut St-Luc in Brussels.
Imposing facade pierced by multiple high windows, and flanked by a 22m high belfry bearing the traditional clock.
The main entrance at the top of a wide staircase show a very typical bas-relief by artist Rudi De Raedt, showing the building inauguration date.
Two other interesting bas-reliefs can be seen on the side façade, representing brick makers for one and witloof (chicory-endive) planters for the other.
