The Palmerston Avenue facadeThis town house was commissioned by a wealthy industrialist, Georges Deprez, for a part-time residence. It actually has two facades, the one here facing Palmerston Avenue and one several rows below facing Bodougnot Street.
An asymmetric facadeBoth this facade and the one below are asymmetric and generally more angular than curvilinear art nouveau structures. Still curving windows and entrances and organic stone carving show the style of Horta.
The bow window running through the first and second stories and the ground floor curvilinear stone support and window grill detail
