A marvelous example of art nouveau and innovative, for the time, use of metal support structure to create a light and airy interior for this historic family home. The layout and use of multiple layers to create an open plan are still fresh and exciting....More

As big art nouveau fans, we were well-prepared for our experience at the Horta Museum, and thankfully weren't disappointed. We took the metro to 'Horta' and then walked to Rue Americaine - no signage, so make sure you take a map! The house lived up...More
