  • Sneyers Léon

In 1937, architect Léon Sneyers signed this sober facade with modernist lines that still recall the rigor of his personal house on rue de l'échevinage in Uccle (1927).

It denotes a little in this row of bourgeois houses.

The red ceramic frames of the windows somewhat punctuate the facade.

Pretty stained glass with geometric and bird motifs also adorn the central windows.

A small bas-relief representing a cherub with birds and butterflies decorates the top of the entrance door.

It will be one of his last houses in Brussels after moving from Art Nouveau to Viennese Secession and Art Deco.
