Nestled in the heart of Ixelles, Belgium, lies a property of unparalleled magnificence. With its clean lines, geometric elegance, and avant-garde design, this residence stands as a testament to the visionary genius of one of Belgium's most renowned architects, Henry Van de Velde.

Born in Antwerp in 1863, Henry van de Velde’s journey to architectural eminence was marked by an incessant pursuit of innovation and aesthetic excellence. Initially trained as a painter, Van de Velde later turned his focus to design and architecture, leaving an indelible mark on Europe’s cultural landscape.

Van de Velde’s design philosophy was deeply rooted in the principles of functionality, simplicity, and harmony. He believed that architecture should not only serve practical ends but also inspire and elevate the human spirit.

Van de Velde’s influence extended far beyond the realm of architecture. He was a prolific designer, educator, and theorist whose ideas helped shape the modern design movement. From furniture and textiles to ceramics and typography, Van de Velde’s work spanned a wide range of disciplines, each bearing the distinctive imprint of his visionary vision.

Named “Hôtel Wolfers” since its construction in 1929, this property is a timeless masterpiece that continues to captivate and inspire all who encounter it. It offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of architectural history.


Meticulously maintained and impeccably preserved, this modernist gem provides a glimpse into a bygone era of innovation and creativity. Situated on a plot of 4 acres 84, this house, spread over 4 levels of approximately 200 m² each (for a total gross area of ± 800 m²), stands majestically with its cascading terraces in the heart of a garden created by the landscaper Jacques Boucher.

Listed since 1983 and included in the inventory of architectural heritage, “Hôtel Wolfers” is distinguished not only by its unique architectural character but also by the scale of its spaces and the quality of its finishes.
