Cubist shaped house, built in 1928 by building contractor Yvan Baudoux, for the stockbroker Venelle.
A mystery surrounds the name of architect Brunnenstein, whom some believe was an imaginary name ... or a pseudonym of Baudoux.
In 1929, following the financial crisis, and the bankruptcy of the client, the house was not completed, and in the years that followed experienced terrible depravity.
Acquired and transformed in 1980 by architect Lydia Kümel, the house regained its original very contemporary character.
A wing was added in 1996, giving it its final shape.
The "scratched" plaster as well as the ocher colors have respected the past’s standards.
