Symbol of the modernist exuberance that took over Europe in the early 1920’s, the Art Deco movement seeped into all artistic disciplines, from design to architecture. It was during the height of the Worlds’ Fairs, at that of Paris in 1925, that the model of the building named “Palais de la Cambre”, designed by Camille-Damman, was notably presented. Constructed between 1924 and 1930, this wonderful group of five buildings takes up a corner of the Étoile roundabout, in Ixelles, facing other famous buildings, such as the “Palais du Congo” and the “Résidence Ernestine”. The characteristic facade reflects the neo-classical style. Adorned with statues and bas-reliefs created by Jacques-Masin, it evokes the triumph of commerce and industry. Laid out on the first floor, this flat extends over a surface area of 130 m². It still has numerous original features, including herringbone pattern parquet flooring, moulded ceilings and elegant coppered doorhandles. Spacious and well laid out, its windows were recently changed. A pleasant 10 m² terrace tops the building’s monumental porchway and its high, finely wrought iron gates. The useful addition of a second entrance door, with a lift, makes it possible to access the garage, available separately for purchase, just like the maid’s room on the 8th floor. A sought-after address, superbly located, right by the terraced gardens of Cambre Abbey.
