Major Town Houses of the Architect Victor Horta (Brussels)

This site was harder to get than I thought. I already had a postcard of a building built by Victor Horta but unfortunately was not included in the UNESCO list. Finally I have two of the four houses

Hôtel van Eetvelde

The Hôtel van Eetvelde is a town house designed in 1895 by Victor Horta for Edmond van Eetvelde, administrator of Congo Free State. Together with the Hôtel Tassel, the Hôtel Solvay and his own House and atelier it was put on the 'UNESCO World Heritage List' in 2000 as the core of epoch-making urban residences Victor Horta designed before 1900. It is located at 4 Avenue Palmerston in Brussels. - in: wikipedia

Housed in the Art Nouveau interiors is a permanent display of furniture, utensils and art objects designed by Horta and his contemporaries as well as documents related to his life and time. - in: wikipedia
