Another fine example of urban eclecticism in Brussels. Raphaël Delville, modernist architect built this house in 1933, on a 3 m wide plot.

He won a real gamble by creating a house with a garage and large windows on the side facade!

Delville remained faithful to his precepts, with a white painted facade and rounded balconies (see the “maison des terrasses”, avenue de l'Echevinage).

It looks nothing like its neighbors, neither in height, nor in width, nor in style ...
