Total eccentricity for this Art Nouveau jewel, designed by Gustave Strauven in 1903, for the painter Georges LĂ©onard de Saint Cyr.

Probably the most flamboyant project built in Brussels, and the best known in the world. Very decried at the time by opponents of Art Nouveau, for its decorations described as "baroque".

The house is incredibly narrow, barely four meters wide, it is difficult to imagine the layout of the interior rooms linked together by a staircase!

Remarkably restored by its last owner.

Listed since August 1988, the house cannot be visited.
