Large house with trade ground floor, designed in 1901 by architect Jean Van Hall. Beautiful facade, made up of three unequal spans, with very neat colored brickwork.
The front door is surmounted by a neo-renaissance loggia, adorned with pretty stained glass. The windows on the first floor were at the origin also adorned with stained glass.
The architect liked the butterflies which appear in series in the stained-glass windows as well as in the basement window’s ironwork.
Bought in 1929 by artist Roger Langbehn’s mother (he died in the honor field in 1918 in the Somme), the house now houses the Roger Langbehn association for education through arts and respect for nature.
The current owners have continued the activities of the association and have remarkably restored the building which can be visited on reservation.
