  Autrique's house
by BeChar

Autrique's house is the first private house of Architect Victor Horta (designed in 1893 for his friend Eugène Autrique, Engineer of Solvay) and contains important elements of Art Nouveau style.

The house was recently restored according to the project of comics creators ("Les Cités Obscures", 1980) François Schuiten (son of two architects) and Benoît Peters. Their objective is to honour house architecture while opening to the imaginary world. Since December 2004, the house is opened for visits, conference, dinner, ...

More generally, 2005 was declared year of Art Nouveau. Have a look at the ptitetoile's Art Nouveau travelogue to have an overview of Art Nouveau in Brussels.
