Very influenced by the new architectural rules of the 30s, just graduated from the Institut de La Cambre, young architect Paul-Amaury Michel designed this avant-garde house in 1935, this was his first achievement.
The front facade is made of glass bricks and a large bay window which illuminates the interior made up of a large duplex.
The rear façade, which cannot be seen from the street, is made up of a high glass bricks wall, in order to preserve the occupants privacy.
Like a lot of buildings from that time, it had suffered time ravages. In 1997, it has been admirably restored and since then well maintained.
The house is an example of modernity, even more than 80 years after its conception.
