Storck House belonged to a family of sculptors and painters. It was designed by Architect Alexandre Clavel and built between 1911 and 1913. Inspired by German architecture, the building hosts impressive frescoes done by Cecilia Storck, sculptures done by Frederic Storck and bas-reliefs by Karl Storck. The house (especially its interiors) comes as an unexpected surprise in a quarter of villas where French architecture prevails.

Zambaccian House. Krikor Zambaccian (1889 - 1962), Armenian business man, gathered art objects for four decades and placed it in this especially built house. The house was built in the 1930s and it was expanded in 1957. In 1946 the owner donated it to the government: 165 paintings, 71 graphics, 40 sculptures and 16 pieces of furniture. One can admire here an impressive collection, including the only Cezanne in Romania, as well as paintings by Luchian, Tonitza and Pallady.

There are more such houses, like Beatrice and Hrandt Avakian House (especially beautiful dwelling), Theodor Aman House or Gheorghe Buzdugan House (nowadays hosting Cornel Medrea's sculpture collection); Avakian House is closed waiting for renovation, Aman House is under restoration, while Buzdugan is open to the public. Go and explore them!
