Huis Saint Cyr - Review
The facade of this house is so narrow - only 4 metres - that you might walk by without ever laying your eyes on it. And that would be a terrible loss, because that’s all you can do. This marvellous Art Nouveau facade was built by Horta’s student Gustave Strauven for painter Leonard St-Cyr in 1903. It stands out even among the city’s other terrific Art Nouveau offerings thanks to its haunted appearance, a twisted and tortured looking lattice of green wrought iron. Every other element of the building seems just ever so slightly out of shape too. It’s almost unsettling to look at, but undeniably striking.

Huis Saint Cyr, Brussels Reviews
Exceptional Art Nouveau house. Can't be visited inside for the time being, but the façade is its most unique element.
Iconic Brussels art nouveau house - not open to public
Creepy house on ambiorix!
Certainly n'est ni la première ni la dernière fois que je viens admirer ce petit bijou !
Une architecture étonnante et très bien entretenu mais encore en rénovation. Le style du quartier est vraiment beau aussi et dénote complètement du quartier des affaires à l'ouest. Il mêle constructions traditionnelles en briques et art nouveau.
