  • Hankar Paul

Personal home of architect Paul Hankar, built in 1893, three years before the construction of the superb Ciamberlani hotel located on the same street.

Very traditional architecture, quite loaded, superimposed with Art Nouveau elements through very elaborate ironwork and Adolphe Crespin’s sgraffito.

Beautiful signatures of the architect in the stone and above the front door.

Building classified in May 1975.
