Superb mansion was designed in 1902 by architect Jules Brunfaut for Edouard Hannon, engineer at Solvay and photographer. The architect beautifully enhanced the corner location of the building.

The two facades surrounding this angle are totally asymmetrical. The one on rue de la Jonction has a superb bow window with fantastic stained glass windows. The corner facade features a bas-relief by Victor Rousseau.

All the stained glass windows were executed by famous artist Raphaƫl Evaldre, author of the stained glass windows for the Tassel, Solvay and Van Eetvelde Houses, among others. Abandoned and vandalized after the death of the last owner, the building narrowly escaped from demolition by Jules Brunfaut's daughter in 1973. It was acquired by the municipality of St Gilles in 1979, to make it a cultural place.

It can be visited during the Heritage Days.

Building classified in 1976.
