Not everyone will be able to make time to visit during the very limited opening hours of this Art Nouveau house. Nevertheless, the jaw dropping facade is enough to warrant a visit all on its own. It’s a mind-bending creation of allegorical sgraffiti by Paul Cauchie, who decorated the house for himself. The facade was meant to serve as an advertisement of sorts for his own skills and it worked! But if you do get to go inside, you’ll find ornate furniture; breathtaking frescoes, a huge gallery of Paul and Lina Cauchie’s paintings, photos and documents exchanged by the couple. The upper floors have been converted into apartments.

Amazing art nouveau, art deco house by Cauchie! Very knowledgeable guided tours really help understand the history and life of the house.
Beautiful art nouveau house, great guide
Beautiful Art Nouveau
Very nice Art Nouveau House built by Paul Cauchie in 1905 as his family home and workshop. The guided tour is worth it, even if there is only a small number of rooms.
The tour starts in the basement atilier and then moves up to the first floor. I would jabe preferred not ro spend so much time in the atelier. The first floor is impressive? Definitely worth the visit.
