Saint-Cyr House

Gustave Strauven
1900





A tall narrow exuberant Art Nouveau facade

Gustave Strauven, one of Horta's pupils, designed this famous house for the painter Georges de Saint-Cyr . It is notable for its tall narrow Art Nouveau facade with elaborate ironwork and its circle loggia at the top. The house today is in terrible disrepair. (Some of the scaffolding I photoshoped out of the images to give a less encumbered view.)
