In 2015, the Maison Autrique received four chairs and two vases from the private residence of Augustin Goovaerts, an architect and contemporary of Horta, born in Schaerbeek, who worked in Colombia in the interbellum. Our collection is naturally geared to our desire to become the “house of houses.”

The arrival of the Goovaerts Collection has turned us into a forum of engagement with the stories of the various architects at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century: their travels, respective influences, way of designing the private residence in a booming city, furniture design, etc. The Maison Autrique wishes to develop its scholarly research into these architects who devoted their life and work to improving daily life in Brussels houses.
