It's called "The Normandie" and is situated in the Belgian coastal town of Koksijde, built in 1936. It's a hotel and a protected monument.

I guess this one could be added as well. The Bijenkorf department store (The Hague, NL). Is this the first Art Deco Department store on this thread? Originally posted by Beholder in another thread (thanks )

I think this is the most famous Art Decó building in Spain, the Capitol in Gran Via, Madrid, one of the most important streets of the capital.
