The Stoclet Palace (FrenchPalais StocletDutchStocletpaleis) is a mansion in BrusselsBelgium
The Stoclet Palace was commissioned by Adolphe Stoclet (1871-1949), a wealthy industrialist and art collector. He chose 35-year-old Austrian architect Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956), a founder member of the Vienna Secession, a radical group of designers and artists established in 1897. Hoffman abandoned fashions and styles of the past and produced a building that is an asymmetrical compilation of rectangular blocks, underlined by exaggerated lines and corners
The mansion is still occupied by the Stoclet family and is not open to visitors. - in: wikipedia
