Built in the 1930s this Art Deco villa was inteded to be used as a residence by Baron Louis Empain. He ended up never staying here, donated it to the city, after which it fell into the hands of the German Army, and later was used as an embassy to the Soviet Union. Managed now by the La Fondation Boghossian and completely renovated, the villa is recognised as one of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in the city. It is all polished marble, polished granite, wrought iron decorations and stained glass windows. Though the place does host art exhibitions, concerts and conferences here now, people usually just come to check out the house.

  • A must place to see. Am surprised about its history but happy it has been brought back to it's former glory.

  • A beautiful art-deco house, a time capsule from a time of great design in architecture. It is a truly aesthetic building. I think the building would be better served by putting furniture from the era in the building. While I understand why the art is exhibited, I found it a bit "bourgeois" and pretentious.

  • Amazing architecture. Always happy To see a great expo. One my favorite museum at Brussels.

  • I was very impressed by this location. The pool, the materials that are used during construction, the exposition inside the villa, the overview on the second floor... The villa is located next to Bois de la Cambre. Very impressive

  • Cosy area for private and corporate eventd
