The Victor Horta
Ma conscience était satisfaite d’avoir contenté un ami et mon bonheur professionnel touchait à toutes mes aspirations du fait d’avoir réalisé une œuvre honnête, n’ayant rien emprunté à personne.(à propos de la maison Autrique)
Victor Horta is probably Belgium’s most accomplished and innovative architect. He is one of the founders of Art Nouveau. He loved curves but his main focus was on luminosity. After World War one, Horta would adapt his style to the public demand for more geometrical Art Deco buildings, but always with strong focus on luminosity. Wandering through Brussels you can still admire some of his works.
Our Horta room is the biggest and brightest one. The flower wall-paper remembers us of Art Nouveau while the symmetrical furniture brings a touch of Art Deco to the room. A sunny little balcony is waiting for you after a day full of discoveries to sit down and enjoy a book. Or if you prefer, the big fully equipped bathroom is perfect to take a bath and relax.
