Located at the bottom of the Mont du Cinquantenaire, along a wide staircase that connects the Avenue des Nerviens to the Chaussée de St Pierre, this modernist house was designed by architect Théodore Louis Janss in 1935.

Very typical of the 1930s, with its three rounded levels, its small-paned windows, and its roof terrace.

The building has been fairly well restored, respecting the original design. The small black and white tiles on the floor attest to this.

This facade stands out among its neighbors built at all times, as evidenced by its quite successful contemporary direct neighbour.

Janss has not left many works in Brussels, another of its very atypical houses is to be seen in Woluwé St Pierre.
