Maison Autrique - The book

The Maison Autrique, Victor Horta's first building of note, is a milestone in Brussels architectural heritage. Firstly, this house (built in 1893) rapresents an essential step in the evolution of the greatest of Belgian architects, and secondly, this building has recently undergone a groundbreaking renovation particulary relevant to a better understanding of the birth of Art Nouveau.

The project - conceived by François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters - is to turn the building into a sort of "Archetypal house", a tribute to Brussels private architecture and to open a door on a fantasy world. Stage - managed from cellar to loft, the Maison Autrique shows up the historical and aesthetic interest of Brussels houses, bringing out their seduction and their mistery.
