Built by architect Edouard Frankinet and decorated by Paul Cauchie in 1903, this astonishing house surprises us with its overload of ornamental elements, as if the architect wanted to demonstrate all his know-how.
As in most Art Nouveau buildings, the facade is divided into two unequal spans, and all the windows are of different shapes.
The front door is particularly neat, with its exceptional stained glass window illustrated with a peacock. The spectacular triangular oriel windows are topped with a horseshoe arch and look like they are standing guard!
The sgraffito under the cornice are attributed to Paul Cauchie.
The building is classified since January 2022.
