Architect Louis-Herman De Koninck designed this house for painter Jacques Lenglet in 1926.
The house is avant-garde for the time and place, the Fond'Roy was still a country side district where avant-garde construction did not really fit..
De Koninck broke with all architectural precepts of the time, rejecting any superfluous, luxurious aspect, using reinforced concrete veil as the main element.
The roof is flat. The current house has been transformed several times, an annex was added. However, De Koninck's soul is still visible, even if the house below the street is difficult to observe.
