Architect(s)
  • Jacqmain A.

Functionalist architect André Jacqmain, signed a very special house here in 1959.

He began his career in 1949 after studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels.

Creative architect, explorer of new forms and ideas, he built this somewhat atypical house in the middle of rather opulent Art Deco and modern buildings.

The great originality of this building lies in the asymmetrical triangular plan of the projecting balconies, and the floors of different heights.

The railings are made from an interlacing of wood and steel.

The cornice is an inverted triangle compared to those of the balconies!
