Superb Art Nouveau bourgeois house at No.41, designed in 1900 by architect Ernest Blerot, for building contractor van Bellinghen Tomberg. The neighboring house, workshop and warehouse, was built for the same client a year later; withnessed by the mosaics trade inscription above the door.

The main house has a magnificent facade with particularly elaborated woodwork, exceptional stained glass. The windows are topped with mosaics representing a flight of swallows and a rooster at dawn above the window on the first floor.

Blerot also built a very similar house for artist Louise de Hem two years later (see rue Darwin No.17).

Buildings listed in July 2006

You just have to cross the large Place Morichar, to admire at No.14, the personal house of architect Delcoigne, another Art Nouveau wonder.
