Remarkable villa built in 1936 by architects, father and son, Adrien and Yvan Blomme, for Maurice Vandevelde, then Director of the "Chantiers Houillers".
In a modernist Art Deco style, it has a large facade in white plaster, beautiful volumes and openings, and very discreet ornaments which give the whole great personality.
The white facade is underlined with black on the edges, which gives it an undeniable elegance.
Purchased by the French state in 1973, it was for a long time inhabited by the French ambassador to NATO, who with his wife restored the interior in the purest Art Deco style in the 90s.
