Ref: 4720811 –

Built in 1905, this house with a surface area of ± 330 m², can be considered as one of the most beautiful works of Art Nouveau in Brussels. In designing this house, the artist sought to assert and enhance his taste, culture and position. The unique façade decorated with sgraffiti (façade paintings), gold leaf and wooden pilasters allowed the artist to spread and sell his talent.

The Maison Cauchie, built with noble materials, typically used for Art Nouveau architecture, is very linear and geometric. The sgraffiti on the façade and some of the interior walls, consisting of distinct stylised motifs, show a love of careful and detailed work.

Around the round window on the top floor is a fresco of a group of women representing architecture, fine and applied arts.
