  • Puttemans Robert

A sober Modernist building designed by architect Robert Puttemans in 1930.

A great admirer of Le Corbusier, the architect questioned all the architectural codes applied until then.

The uncluttered facade presents a quite avant-garde design, pierced with a large bay window on the first floor which served as his workshop, and large horizontal windows which generously let in light.

The ground floor featured offices, while the second floor had bedrooms and access to a large roof garden.

The building seems to have kept all the original metal frames.
