Built in 1939, for the Belgian Red Cross, by architect Pierre Devos (signature on the right side of the portal), in a modernist style typical of the late 1930s.

The beautiful, symmetrical facade has three bays, the central one of which is marked by a beautiful door frame in hard stone.

Hard stone which also punctuates the entire facade alternating with the fine yellow bricks very popular at the time.

Fine black frames punctuate this beautiful facade.

The building underwent a complete overhaul in 2016, transforming it into luxury apartments under the leadership of French architect Jean Nouvel.

Fortunately, the front facade has been preserved.

The beautiful colored stained glass window that overhung the front door has been replaced by a sober hard stone cross.
