Right next to the beautiful House Hannon, is this very special Art Nouveau house built in 1899, called Les Hiboux (Owls) because of the two hard stone nocturnal birds located on top of the facade, as well as a sgraffito bearing the inscription "Les Hiboux" illustrated with two birds and white lilies above the front door.

Astonishing windows on the upper floors, housed in horseshoe arches, just like the one above the front door.

The architect is Edouard Pelseneer, whose father Henri Pelseneer was one of the great manufacturers of Art Nouveau furniture in Brussels, notably for Victor Horta.

Building listed in October 1983.
