It is/was right next to the museumshop. The presentation was a bit old fashioned altough part of that was very deliberate. The showcases Horta designed for the Wolfers jewellry were donated to the museum and reused to show art nouveau and art deco. It has a rather rich collection. I guess the sphinx is the most famous piece on display there

Wouldn't have hurt if a couple of those sgraffiti panels had gotten preserved there. If the rooms themselves get renovated the showcases and the collections would form an absolute highlight of the museum.

Oh yeah, thàt exhibitionroom. Never been in that part of the Museum.
Is it a permanent collection, or just a temporary art-nouveau-expo?

It used to be a permanent collection in just one room. According to the website of the museum it's now closed for the moment but it will be expanded in the near future with several new rooms dedicated to the belgian decorated arts from 1890 till 1940 because most of the items had to be stored in the reserves.

Sint-Pieters-Woluwe/Woluwe-Saint-Pierre

This part of the town lies to east near to the Sonian Forest. It's one of the richer neighbourhoods and home to a lot of embassies and diplomats.




























The Stoclet palace. Although its build in Brussels this is considered to be a masterpiece of the Wiener Secession. Alphonse Stoclet lived in austria for a while and fell in love with the work of Josef Hoffmann and the Wiener Werkstätte so he commissioned him to build his new villa. The interior is decorated by Gustav Klimt.

Ukkel/Uccle


















The russian-orthodox chuch of Ukkel, apparently a lot of refugees settled there after the revolution of 1917.












The Villa Bloemenwerf, the first house build by Henry Van de Velde, an important pioneer of art nouveau and modernism. This one is still mostly arts and crafts though.

Uccle is a very nice community. I really like the architecture in many of the outskirts in Brussels.

Very charming and cozy!
