    A Guided Tour of the Hôtel Solvay


    Saturday, May 16 - 10.00 a.m.

    Back by popular demand and given the fact that the September visit sold out in 24 hours, we are again offering you the magnificent opportunity for a very special guided visit to the Hôtel Solvay on Avenue Louise on Saturday, May 16th.  Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Monument, the Solvay House is one of the major town houses of the architect Victor Horta. In 1894, the chemical magnate, Armand Solvay, hired Horta to build a home for his bride. Solvay gave Horta unlimited freedom of creation and unrestricted funding for the project.

    The Solvay House greatly contributed to Horta’s rising reputation as a world-class architect. His new focus on the innate vitality of people led him to change many accepted practices. He adapted and altered metal frames used in industrial structures to bring radically new qualities to the inner space of a home.

    These innovations are all directed towards enhancing the life of those who live in the house. What strikes the visitor to this wonderful building is its luminous space, in which light filters through from everywhere, softened by the carefully arranged coloration of the walls, the floor coverings, and the glasswork.

    Our guide will again be Mrs. Lieve Dejonghe, an art historian, who has been our guide for several exhibits over the years.

    Please note that this visit is limited to 22 people. So, do sign up quickly for this spectacular visit!
