Antoine Pompe is not the most well known architect to the general public, but he deserves our attention because he had a style of his own. The few houses he left behind are quite unique in that they are unlike any other.

He built his first houses very late, at the age of 37, after having gone through Victor Horta's workshop.

This house, located rue des Atrébates, built in 1922, stands out completely from the neighboring houses. It is reminiscent of Dr. Van Neck's clinic built 12 years earlier in St-Gilles.

A grey brick facade in unequal spans with a spur window upstairs.

An original wrought iron front door with a spider web design.

The facade has been restored respecting the original design.

In the 1920s, Antoine Pompe worked with other modernist architects on the construction of the garden cities of Kapelleveld in Woluwe-St-Lambert.
