Welcome to the family house and workshop of architect Victor Horta.

Built between 1898 and 1901, the two buildings are typical of Art Nouveau at its height. The house has retained much of its interior decoration: mosaics, stained glass windows and murals make up a harmonious whole, refined down to the smallest detail.

The artists Louise Devin and Milan Jespers have introduced their works into this house museum, which was both a home and a hub of creativity, to revisit its family history. Through the respective mediums of ceramics and drawings they reveal the past, the memories of a private space that was also a place of work, and the trace of a family’s presence.
